EuroMillions Jackpot of €143 Million Won in Spain

EuroMillions Jackpot of €143 Million Won in Spain

A player from Spain matched all seven numbers in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 7th December to pocket a jackpot worth €143 million.

The winning numbers were 22, 31, 38, 46 and 47, with Lucky Stars 7 and 11. More than 1.9 million prizes were won across Europe, but only one entry matched the full set of numbers. Take a look at the EuroMillions Results page for a full prize breakdown.

The jackpot-winning ticket was sold in León in northwest Spain, and the winner now has three months to come forward and claim their money. They can enjoy a wonderful Christmas and beyond with their new-found wealth, but also face a big decision over whether to go public or stay anonymous.

Biggest Wins of 2021

Tuesday’s win ranks as the fifth-largest of 2021, as a remarkable year of record-breaking payouts comes towards an end. Less than two months ago, a ticket holder from French Polynesia landed €220 million to become the biggest winner in EuroMillions history.

The latest jackpot was set up by a Superdraw on Friday 3rd December, which rolled over on the night. It could have kept growing until it had reached €230 million, but the player from León stopped the run in its tracks.

Spain has now had 113 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004. On the list of the most successful countries, Spain trails France and the UK by just one jackpot. The UK and France have both been the scene of 114 jackpot wins.

The date of the next Superdraw will be announced in due course, once it has been decided by the participating National Lotteries.

There have been four Superdraws in 2021, helping to create big jackpots on a more regular basis. The jackpot has also been building more quickly between draws in the last couple of years since changes were made to how the prize money is distributed.

Another big jackpot is always around the corner, and for now the top prize will reset to €17 million for the next draw on Friday night.
