Who is the lucky winner?
We know you like jackpot winner stories so much, but this one might remain untold. Why? Because Portugal allows its winners to remain anonymous. While some countries encourage those lucky ones who hit the jackpot to reveal their names and share their stories with the public, Portuguese authorities withhold all details regarding the winner if so requested.
