We don’t hear about many wins from the favourite Euro Jackpot, but this time around we have a big winner from Barcelona who bagged the top €31.5 million jackpot prize. Continue reading for the full information breakdown.
The winner got lucky in the Euro Jackpot draw that took place on the 9th of October, Friday. The winner was one lucky player that matched all of the five main numbers and the two Euro numbers to win the entire jackpot for themselves. Close sources to the winner have revealed that the winning ticket was sold in Spain, Barcelona, which makes them the first ever winner of a top prize for a multi-national jackpot. A jackpot has been won in the country of Spain before, an even bigger prize of €48 million with the EuroMillions lottery earlier in May this year.
The EuroJackpot lottery in Spain is run by “ONCE”, which is a non-profit organisation that uses its proceeds to help people suffering from disabilities like the blind or deaf. The lottery agents that sell the tickets for the Euro Jackpot belong to ONCE, and many of them have disabilities themselves. The EuroJackpot has undergone many changes in its lifetime with the most recent upgrade being bigger jackpot prizes, as this massive win of €35.1 million has proved.
The person who sold last Friday’s winning Euro Jackpot ticket was Antonio Rodriguez who has a store situated in the Les Corts district of Barcelona. Antonio’s neighbourhood is currently celebrating their annual “Fiesta Mayor” and somebody in that districts can now celebrate even more with thanks to the winning ticket sold by their neighbour.
Antonio said that he has been selling EuroJackpot tickets with ONCE for almost seven years and is so happy that he sold a winning ticket from one of his two selling points, both located in Calle Joan Guell. The winner might choose to remain anonymous, so, unfortunately, we might not get to hear who they are, but we should respect their privacy if they wish to remain anonymous and congratulate them on their good fortune.
Historically, this is the first time that the EuroJackpot top prize has been won in Spain. However, on the 15th of May, there was one player from Bellvitge de L’Hospitalet, another district of Barcelona, who managed to win the second-tier prize after matching the five main numbers and one Euro number. This means they were lucky enough to win a sum of €7 million!
If that player had matched one extra number, they would have won a whopper of a jackpot prize to the tune of €90 million! This prize went on to be won by a player from the Czech Republic!
So there you have it. Winners can come from all walks of life, from all over the world. If you want to get lucky with this lottery, then you need to believe in your lucky numbers, read our lottery tips, and play hard!
Stay in the game and you’ll soon come out victorious.
Best of luck!
