Record €190 Million EuroMillions Jackpot Won in Spain
A very lucky Spaniard will be celebrating after being the sole person to match all the numbers and claim the record-breaking €190 million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night.
The prize had been growing since the start of September and reached its maximum size. The winning ticket was validated at El Mirador Shopping Centre in Las Palmas, a popular holiday destination. While the jackpot was won in Spain there were four UK tickets that matched five numbers and one Lucky Star to win £900,571 each. The National Lottery’s senior winners’ adviser, Andy Carter, has urged all UK players to check their tickets to see if they are one of the winning players.
The jackpot winner will be richer than Adele who has £125 million in the bank, Wayne Rooney, who has £92 million and all of One Direction combined who have around £40 million each.
