Swiss Record Breaker
This is the first time the game’s jackpot has been won since Friday 3rd November, when a syndicate of hospital kitchen workers from Wales claimed a jackpot worth £25.4 million. The win also marks a special moment for EuroMillions enthusiasts in Switzerland who are celebrating their country’s first top prize win since Friday 21st March 2014, when a single ticket holder from the Swisslos area scooped over CHF 31 million.
The draw also saw a four-year-old record shattered as the most recent player secured the biggest lottery prize in the landlocked nation’s history. The win comfortably tops the CHF 115.5 million won by an entrant from western Switzerland on Friday 23rd August 2013. Unfortunately, the win didn’t quite make it into the top ten largest EuroMillions prize wins of all time (currently ranked 11th), however, it is unlikely that the fortuitous lottery fan will care too much.
Tuesday’s EuroMillions Draw
The jackpot winner may be the talk of the continent, but there were plenty of other prize winners in Tuesday’s draw. Three players - two from the UK and one from Spain - correctly matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to land £285,288 (€434,845), while seven ticket holders will be enjoying an extra bottle of bubbly after each winning a Match 5 prize of £28,477 (€43,406).
In total, there were over 2.2 million winners on what proved to be a prosperous night for lovers of the pan-European lottery. The remaining prizes won ranged from £3 (€5) for matching two numbers to £1,547 (€2,359) for correctly predicting the outcome of four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
