Lucky EuroMillions player wins life-changing €27 million jackpot in Spain’s Mallorca

lottery winner

LADY luck came to the door of one Mallorca resident on Tuesday.

Just the one solitary winner correctly guessed all six numbers – as well as two lucky stars – to clinch the €27 million jackpot.

This life-changing ticket was bought at the Lottery Office No. 1 in the tiny village of Lloseta. 

This individual is set to see the handsome sum of €26,274,769 deposited into their bank account.

However, the winner might be irked to find out that 20% of the winnings will be shaved off by the taxman.

In the third category, where players guessed five numbers correctly, another winning ticket surfaced in Spain, earning its holder the non-derisory prize of €16,164.

Spain also secured a third winner in the Europe-wide lottery, as the winning ticket for the accompanying ‘The Million’ ticket, a popular add-on in the EuroMillions, was bought in Malaga.

EuroMillions is an immensely popular transnational lottery that has taken Europe by storm since its launch in 2004. 

Often dubbed the ‘Millionaire Maker,’ draws are held every Tuesday and Friday in Paris. 

During the draw, five main numbers and two Lucky Stars are randomly selected.

Multiple European countries take part, including the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, and more. 

The vast pool of players is what allows EuroMillions to generate such colossal jackpots – but it also means the chances of winning are astronomical. 

But what keeps the punters coming back – the largest ever EuroMillions jackpot exceeded €170 million.
