The winning ticket was purchased in Parla, in the community of Madrid and the wait is now on for the lucky winner to come forward and claim their new found fortune. Although the jackpot wasn’t the largest seen in EuroMillions history, it enters the record books as the largest prize won in Spanish lottery history. Prior to this, the largest Spanish prize was worth €126.2 million and was won in the EuroMillions draw on 8th May 2009 by a female player who chose to remain anonymous.
Friday’s jackpot winner wasn’t the only Spanish player to strike it lucky in the draw as, along with three other ticket holders from across Europe, one Spanish player matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to secure a second tier prize worth €700,752. Following the first and second tier winners were over 4.4 million ticket holders who secured prizes worth between £2.80 (€3.90) for matching just two main numbers up to £60,654 (€84,939) for matching all five main numbers. The full prize breakdown from Friday’s draw can be found on Euro-Millions.com.
As the top prize was won in Friday’s draw, the jackpot has now reset to £12 million (€15 million) for tomorrow night’s draw.
