The winning numbers for the EuroMillions draw of December 7th have been revealed: 22, 31, 38, 46 and 47, with Lucky Stars 7 and 11. One lucky Spanish player matched them and stands to bag a whopping €143,469,842 prize.
The same draw delivered €1.9 million in total prizes, but only one ticket matched the full combination. Other two lucky players matched the 5 winning numbers, but just one Lucky Star and they will cash €418,527 each. One of them is from Spain like the jackpot winner. The second one comes from the UK. The British ticket holder will bag £298,841.
This mouth-watering jackpot was set up by a EuroMillions Superdraw held on Friday 3rd December. The €130 million starting jackpot rolled over on the night. If the Spanish ticket holder hadn’t stopped its run, this jackpot could have kept growing and reached the €230 million jackpot cap. In this scenario, the jackpot cap would have increased again.
This is the 17th jackpot the EuroMillions lottery delivered this year and the 5th largest. For now, there are no details about the lucky jackpot winner. All we know is that the ticket was purchased in León, in the Northwest of Spain. The lucky ticket owner has three months to come forward and claim this amazing prize. As we are close to the holidays’ season, we can only say they could have an amazing Christmas with their new-found wealth.
