The biggest EuroMillions lottery jackpot, which rolled over to its maximum jackpot amount has been won by a single Spanish EuroMillions lotto enthusiast. Not only did they take the bull by the horns and buy a EuroMillions lottery ticket – their lucky EuroMillions lotto numbers bagged them a mighty €190 million (£168m) top jackpot prize.
After several weeks of rollovers the EuroMillions lottery jackpot was finally scooped up on Friday night, by a lotto player in Spain. The prize had rolled over since the start of September because no one had matched five numbers and two lucky stars in the twice-weekly draws. It had reached its maximum size.
The winning EuroMillions lotto numbers for Friday, October, 6, 2017 are 01, 09, 15, 19 and 25 and Lucky Star numbers 01 and 07.
The winner has yet to be identified. But we are guessing they have had quite a celebration over the weekend. The winning ticket was sold in the El Mirador Shopping Centre in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria, Spain.
Even though no one from Britain never matched all the EuroMillions winning numbers to claim the record as the biggest Pound equivalent top jackpot prize on EuroMillions, four UK ticket holders did however match five numbers and one Lucky Star to win £900,571 each.
According to Camelot, as many as 26,000 tickets could have been sold every minute in the hour-long build up to Friday night’s draw.
€500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket winner
Lance O’Neill, owner of Barrys Mace in Blackwater, Ardnacrusha, Co Clare, received a phone call to say he’s store had sold a winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket in Friday night’s massive €190 million draw.
Lance and his family had just started a family holiday near Barcelona in Spain when he learned one of his customers is a half a million euros richer. Not only did his store sell the winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket, but the actual jackpot was also sold in Spain.
“How ironic is that. I can confirm that I did not buy a EuroMillions ticket here so I am not the Spanish jackpot winner!” said Mr O’Neill.
Spain is one of a handful of countries that tax lottery wins, giving the taxman 20% before anything!
“It’s a small village and it would be lovely if it was somebody local who has won. But it could also have been anybody driving through going to East Clare. I look forward to celebrating with staff and locals when I get home next week.”
