Spanish EuroMillions Player Secures Spain's Largest Lottery Prize
16th June 2014 12:46 PM
One lucky Spanish EuroMillions player has become the country’s largest ever lottery winner after securing the huge £109 million (€137 million) jackpot in Friday’s draw. The lucky winner, who has not yet come forward, purchased their ticket in Parla, in the community of Madrid.
Before Friday’s impressive jackpot win, the largest lottery prize won in the country stood at €126 million and was won on 8th May 2009 by a Spanish woman who claimed her prize anonymously.
This is not the first time a Spanish player has struck it lucky and won a EuroMillions jackpot prize this year as, over the past six months, a total of six Spanish ticket holders have won or shared a top tier prize. The most recent win brings the total amount of jackpot winnings for Spain to an incredible €321.1 million so far this year.
The luck continued for Spanish players in Friday’s draw as, in addition to three other European players, another Spanish ticket holder secured a second tier prize of €700,752 for matching all five main numbers and one Lucky Star.
In total, there were over 4.4 million winners in Friday’s draw who claimed prize money worth between £2.80 (€3.90) and £60,654 (€84,939). In addition to the winners in the main draw, one UK ticket holder became £1 million richer by matching the UK Millionaire Raffle code MKX532718 while the French player who matched the My Million code EK3268273 won the €1 million prize.
