Belgian Player Wins €142 Million EuroMillions Jackpot

After Friday’s Superdraw rollover, a single player snapped up the EuroMillions jackpot at the next time of asking, as someone won €142 million on Tuesday night. The winning ticket was sold in Belgium.

The winning numbers for Tuesday 6th December were 12, 20, 25, 26 and 27, with Lucky Stars 8 and 12. Check out the prize breakdown to see a table showing how many winners there were in each country, plus the prize values.

There were more than 27 million entries purchased for the draw, but only one matched the full winning line.

It emerged a couple of days after the draw that the winning ticket was sold in Olmen, and actually belonged to a group of 165 players. The syndicate was organised by the De Pershoek shop, with each member of the group paying €15 to take part. As the jackpot was so large, each player will receive almost €1 million.

In Belgium, it is common for the winners to stay private but for the national lottery to release some details about them. For example, the country’s record winner in 2016 was said to love football, Robert De Niro films and cooking with fish. The latest win ranks as the third-largest payout ever seen in Belgium.

It is the fourth jackpot win in a row that has been worth more €100 million. Even more remarkably, there have now been seven players this year who have netted nine-figure prizes.

The biggest of the lot came when a UK player pocketed £195 million in July after the jackpot reached its cap of €230 million. The maximum limit was subsequently raised to €240 million and there was a chance the jackpot could have gone all the way to its ceiling after the Superdraw rollover, but instead there were celebrations in Belgium on Tuesday.

The jackpot will now reset to €17 million, with draws continuing every Tuesday and Friday. There are also sure to be more big promotions on the way.
