A lucky Briton could be on the verge of winning the biggest national lottery jackpot in history if he wins Friday’s EuroMillions draw.
It is estimated that £ 172million is up for grabs if the jackpot is won by a single ticket holder.
On Tuesday, the main EuroMillions winning numbers were 11, 13, 14, 36, 45 and the lucky star winning numbers were 07, 09.
No one won the top prize earlier this week, making tonight’s jackpot the biggest potential payout ever.
Andy Carter of Camelot, Senior National Lottery Winners Advisor, said: “Friday’s exciting EuroMillions jackpot is estimated at £ 172 million.
“If a British winner cashed in the full amount, he would instantly become the greatest UK national lottery winner of all time.”
A single jackpot would eclipse the UK’s current record prize of £ 170,221,000, won by an anonymous player in a EuroMillions draw on October 8, 2019.
This has already been a good year for gigantic lottery payouts, with two of the 10 biggest wins coming in 2021.
An anonymous ticket holder won £ 122,550,350 in a draw on April 2, while £ 111,540,000 was claimed in a SuperDraw two months later.
To put the prize in perspective, the potential winner would immediately earn 5,467 times the UK average wage.
They could also afford to buy over 340 midsize properties in London, as well as surpass Novak Djokovic’s career earnings of £ 110million with enough money to buy a G6 private jet worth £ 47. 650,000 pounds sterling.

Bettors will need to keep an eye on tickets tonight as, surprisingly, some jackpots in the past have not been claimed.
Even as recently as September this year, someone who bought a ticket in St Helens, Merseyside took home a life-changing £ 1million but the prize was not claimed with the winner having until March 2022 to claim it.
