LADY luck has descended on hilltop village Benaojan with €10.5 million of lottery winnings distributed across several elated residents.
The big €9 million prize was won by a young couple with no car, earning just €1000 per month from their family meat business.
They had been playing the ONCE lottery for six years with the same number ticket (93624).
Meanwhile, hotel Molino del Santo head of reception Paco won two €30,000 prizes, the butcher Carlos Ortiz took €30,000, as did the local bar owners, a station platform worker and a cluster of others.
Miguel Lora, nicknamed ‘El Lorita,’ has been distributing the tickets in Benaojan for 27 years and also saw the town bag €2.5 million of lottery winnings in 2003.
