The winning numbers were 6, 9, 13, 24, and 41. The lucky stars were 3 and 12.

The win is the biggest ever scooped by a player of the EuroMillions lottery with the previous record standing at €190m, won a number of times, most recently in October 2019.

Friday's staggering prize went up for grabs after the jackpot rolled over twice last week.

Apart from France, EuroMillions tickets can be bought in in Austria, Belgium, Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
