Biggest Lottery Win in History

Euro millions results on Friday 9th May produced a shocking historic result. A single very lucky ticket holder from Spain has just hit the jackpot winning a massive 126.23 million euro (£113,229,891). This is the largest jackpot in the 5 year history of the euro millions lottery draw breaking the previous record set four years ago by an Irish woman.

The lucky Spaniard picked the 7 numbers – but no-one else in the World did – meaning they were the one and only winner. There has been larger jackpots in Euro millions history but these have always been shared between several ticket holders. This huge single win is mathematical stand intact for along time, with the ticket holder beating odds of 76 million to one to cliam the jackpot

The previous record holder for the biggest Euro millions was Dolores McNamara of Ireland, who won a jackpot of GBP 77 million in July 2005.

The largest UK jackpot winner was from Scotland (Glasgow), the lucky winner that time being Angela Kelly, who won her £35.4 million EuroMillions jackpot just less than 2 years ago back in August 2007. Angela still holds the status of being the biggest lottery winner in history of the United Kingdom. .

To win the lottery you need to be extremely lucky – the exact odds of winning the top prize is 1 in 76,275,360 – the lucky euro millions jackpot winner needing to match the 5 main numbers from 1 to 50 and then choose the “lucky star” numbers from 1 to 9.

“These Euro millions jackpots have generated unprecedented world wide interest” said Ken McLeod a lottery syndicate organiser “people have been clamouring to grab a piece of the action and now they can buy their Euro Lottery tickets online from almost any where in the world”.

Ken demonstrated further how the syndicate system not only drastically cut the odds of winning but also guaranteed the “lucky star” numbers in every draw, thereby meaning you only had to get 5 numbers correct to win not the full seven.

Euromillions players who want to take advantage of this unique syndicate system are advised to review the Euro Lottery website and join prior to the next Fridays draw.
