This jackpot win comes only two weeks after a £9,3 million jackpot was won by a player from Essex, bringing the total prize money awarded by the National Lottery in 2018 to well over £20 million.
The winning numbers came in at 31, 01, 33, 55, 52, 04 and the bonus ball was 13. The ball set number 1 and draw machine Merlin was used in the winning draw.
Andy Carter, a senior spokesperson for National Lottery operator Camelot, told news outlets, "We have another lucky £9 million-plus Lotto jackpot winner who this time takes home a life-changing £9.5 million, congratulations to the ticket-holder and we look forward to raising a glass with the National Lottery's newest big winner."
The next UK National Lottery starting jackpot will be an estimated £1.8 million.
