Now the winner has been named by the Telegraph newspaper in the UK as Ugi Verni, a single man who is said to be in his late forties. Although Ugi denied that he was the elusive winner of the biggest lottery payout that has even been won by an individual player in Europe, the Telegraph reported that the grin which followed his denial told a very different story.
Of course, it could be that Ugi Verni was telling the truth and that he is not in fact the SuperEnalotto jackpot winner that everyone is looking for, but it could just as easily be the case that Ugi is the winner and simply doesn’t want to admit it in public. If so, Ugi’s reluctance to discuss the win is perfectly understandable. All lottery jackpot winners receive an enormous amount of attention when they make their success public, so the amount of attention that a record-breaking SuperEnalotto winner would receive would be almost unimaginable.
The problem for big lottery jackpot winners is that suddenly becoming a multi-millionaire isn’t something that is particularly easy to keep quiet about. As soon as just one person finds out about the win, the news can spread rapidly. This is especially so when newspaper journalists are focusing all of their efforts on identifying the winner.
Like the Telegraph newspaper, we think that Ugi Verni could well be the SuperEnalotto jackpot winner. However, we can’t be absolutely certain until the actual winner - or someone close to the winner – decides to confirm the rumours.
