Five winners have shared Saturday's Lotto jackpot of £4.8 million, but in a rare draw twist, their prize money was trumped by the person who matched five numbers plus the bonus ball, who scooped nearly £1.5 million.
A Camelot spokesman, who described the situation as "very rare", said it came about because the jackpot winners had to share their allocation of 52% of the total prize draw once the £10 winners had been paid, but the sole person who matched five numbers plus the bonus ball was lucky enough to take their full 16% share of the fund.
"That's the beauty of the lottery - you never know what's going to happen," the spokesman said. "It's certainly very rare, but at the end of the day we have six big winners tonight who have won life-changing money and we think it's fantastic news."
The winning numbers were 49, 41, 39, 36, 15, 30 and the bonus number was 02.
The jackpot winners will each collect a prize of £968,272 for matching all six numbers.
One ticketholder matched five numbers plus the bonus to take home the £1,489,649, while 331 won £2,812 for five numbers.
A total of 17,931 matched four numbers to claim £114 each, while 367,896 won £10 for matching three numbers.
The map was commissioned to mark Tuesday night's EuroMillions roll-over which is now a staggering £138 million - the fifth biggest jackpot ever offered in the UK.</p>
Should anyone scoop the jackpot, their wealth will be slightly less than Europe's biggest Lottery winners Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in Ayrshire. The husband and wife made the headlines in July when they won £161,653,000, thanks to several rollovers.</p>
Boasting 164 National Lottery millionaires, one in 14,211 North East residents has now banked a seven-figure jackpot prize. Winners Paul and Christine Goldie from Washington, near Sunderland, pocketed £3,581,481 after their numbers came up on Christmas Day last year.</p>
The Millionaire Map, which includes both publicity and non-publicity winners, is based on the number of millionaires created per adult population. One man who did go public with his winnings was Wayne Hughes from Holyhead on Anglesey, north Wales. The shop worker scooped £1,117,779 last August and even had the winning numbers tattooed on his arm.</p>
The region with the fewest millionaire jackpot winners was Northern Ireland, where only 53 seven-figure or more winners were created.</p>
Wales has seen 179 millionaires - one person in 14,502 - created over the last 16 years. Rugby fans Terry Roberts, Mike Williams, Lance Gifford and Gerwyn Jones, from the Rhondda Valley in south Wales, split £4,091,609 in April this year.</p>
