The prize ballooned to a record high after being dragged from lower amounts for about six weeks. There was about 76 million tickets sold… odds was really, impossibly slim… but a single ticket made it through to claim the big lot.
“The record for a single win in EuroMillions is believed to have been broken when Friday’s sixth-rollover draw was won by a single ticket holder,” EuroMillions said on its website about the game which pools stakes from nine European lotteries. The winning numbers were 4, 29, 23, 31, 24 and the Lucky Stars 9 and 8. The total jackpot was 126,231,764 euros.
The shop from where the ticket was sold was surprised. They are very uncertain who the winner was too as the shop was in the middle of a tourist belt. “It could be anyone… even a tourist… lucky lucky guy!”
