The winner of Friday night’s £84.4 million EuroMillions Lottery jackpot has chosen anonymity after claiming the huge jackpot prize, a claim which makes the EuroMillions winner richer than Sean Connery, according to the Sunday Times Rich List 2010.

The massive £84,451,320.60 jackpot prize instantly pushed the lucky lottery winner up the Rich List, overtaking big names such as James Bond star, Connery, rock legend Jimmy Page and comedian Rowan Atkinson. The EuroMillions Lottery winners will take their place on the Rich List at 789th or higher, depending on their wealth ahead of this enormous lottery jackpot win.

Friday night’s UK EuroMillions winner joins a growing list of recent EuroMillions jackpot winners from the UK and jumps straight into the top spot of the UK’s biggest lottery winners list, overtaking Nigel and Justine Page who scooped £56 million on the EuroMillions Lottery in February. The Page’s win came just three months after the £91 million EuroMillions jackpot was shared by two UK EuroMillions ticket holders.

Back in November of last year the UK EuroMillions landslide began, when the Magnificent Seven, a lottery syndicate of IT workers from Merseyside and Les Scadding, an unemployed lorry driver from South Wales shared the £91.2 million EuroMillions jackpot. This massive UK lottery haul broke the biggest UK lottery prize record twice instantly and since then the haul has continued.
