GBP 90 million won by two ticket holders
Twenty four hours after the winning numbers were announced in Britain's biggest yet lottery draw, the two winning ticket holders have yet to come forward to collect over GBP 90 million between them.
Lottery operator Camelot said there had been no valid claimants to the prizes, worth GBP 45.57 million each.
The winners have 180 days following Friday night's EuroMillions draw to collect, or the money will be split between good causes.
'We are looking forward to the winners coming forward,' said a Camelot spokesman. 'We have no valid claims so far.'
The previous record for a UK lottery win was held by Angela Kelly, a Glasgow postal worker, who banked nearly GBP 35.5 million in the same competition in August 2007.
Since the national lottery began 15 years ago, 2 300 millionaires have been created. The three largest lottery prizes won in Britain are all from the EuroMillions game, where the prizes are much bigger than the Lotto because the game covers eight countries other than the UK.
The biggest winner of EuroMillions ever was a 25-year-old woman from Spain who scooped GBP 110 milion in May this year .
