Austrian Ticket Holder Claims £43.5 Million (€54.3 Million) Rollover Jackpot
22nd August 2014 10:57 AM
One lucky Austrian ticket holder has claimed the biggest EuroMillions jackpot since the middle of July, finding themselves a cool £43.5 million (€54.3 million) better off in the short amount of time it took for the draw to take place in Paris on Tuesday night.
The fledgling multimillionaire from Tyrol became Austria’s twelfth EuroMillions jackpot winner, and the country’s first resident to bag the top prize since September 2011, when they correctly matched the main numbers 4, 7, 11, 34 and 47 and Lucky Stars 7 and 8.
If the lucky player is struggling to decide what to splash the cash on first, and wanted to help bolster their homeland’s economy, they could look at a Mercedes SL600, completely studded in crystals created by Austria’s world famous Swarovski company, as exhibited at the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2009. The £2.9 million (€3.6 million) price tag would barely make a dent in the ticket holder’s fortune, although the insurance premiums may cause a few sleepless nights.
Also celebrating after Tuesday’s draw are five winners who will each receive £157,766 (€220,508) after matching all five main balls and one Lucky Star. The next prize tier saw 11 players win £23,904 (€33,410) after correctly matching five main balls. Another 1.8 million ticket holders secured prizes ranging between £2.90 (€4.10) for matching two main balls and £2,480 (€3,467) for matching four main balls and two Lucky Stars.
In addition to the main draw, one very happy UK ticket holder is rejoicing after scooping the £1 million prize for matching the winning Millionaire Raffle code KQV089304.
If you’d like a taste of the millionaire lifestyle, there is £11 million (€15 million) up for grabs tonight and you can buy EuroMillions tickets online or from an authorised retailer.
