Euro millions results on Friday 9th May generated a stunning 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 Spanish winner was the only one to pick the correct 7 numbers beating the odds of 76 million to one. There have been bigger EuroMillions jackpots, but those have always been split between several winners, this massive single winner jackpot will statistically stand intact for along time.
Dolores McNamara from Ireland was the previous holder of the record having won 77 million back in July of 2005
Angela Kelly from Glasgow holds the distinction of being the largest UK lottery winner, she won GBP 35.4 million 2 years ago in August’07.
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.
