The ticket holder’s claim will now be verified and if everything matches the huge prize will be theirs.
The potential winner will have the chance to become public after the validation process is complete and after being paid.

It comes less than a week after reports that EuroMillions winner Adrian Bayford sold the mansion he bought with his Â£ 148million jackpot.
Adrian and his then wife Gillian bought the country heap in Cambridgeshire in 2012.
However, less than a year later, Gillian left him for a car salesman.
Adrian then dated Marta Jarosz, a Polish sausage factory worker, 37; got engaged to stable girl Sam Burbidge, 33; and had a relationship with waitress Lisa Kemp, 41.
But the path to love has not been successful for 50-year-old Adrian, reports the Sun.

And according to friends, he was keen to get rid of the Grade II listed home and its 189-acre estate, because he blames it for much of his misfortune.
A friend of the ex-postman, Adrian, said that in the end he just wanted to “get rid” of the property.
They told The Sun, âHe blames the house for all the bad luck he’s had in love.
âHe says moving from his old happy life has brought him all the bad luck he’s had.
“Ever since Gillian left he just wanted someone to share his millions with who but it didn’t work out.”
The mansion languished for three years before being put up for sale as Adrian associated the property with “bad luck”.
And aerial photos from the Horseheath Lodge era show its stable blocks looking dilapidated, with weeds growing in the stable yard.
Prior to the sale, the estate agent said on his website: âHorseheath Lodge is a pristine residential estate built between 1815 and 1825.
“The estate is centered around the historic Grade II listed Georgian house, which has been tastefully renovated by the current owner to provide three function rooms and six bedrooms.”
He brought the house which includes a cinema, billiard room, gym and swimming pool to market in 2018 and got Â£ 6.5million for it.
It is marked as sold on the land sales listings website Addland.com.
