The draw on Friday, February 26th 2021 had a €210 million jackpot – biggest prize ever displayed by the EuroMillions lottery. A single ticket holder from Switzerland matched the winning numbers of the draw and will scoop that amazing jackpot!
The winning numbers for the lucky draw of February 26th were 6, 12, 22, 29 and 33, with Lucky Stars 6 and 11. As revealed shortly after the draw, only one ticket matched these numbers and the lucky entry was purchased in Switzerland. This means that the ticket owner(s) will be landing a life-changing jackpot of €210 million.
This newly-found fortune that will catapult the lucky Swiss winner ahead of many celebrities. The winner will now have to decide whether to stay anonymous or go public with their story, but they can already start to think about what they will do with the money.
This is the biggest prize the EuroMillions lottery has ever had on display. It was reached after no participating ticket matched the winning numbers of the EuroMillions SuperDraw on February 5th that offered a guaranteed jackpot of €130 million. The same thing happened the four draws that followed. As a result, the draw of Tuesday, February 23rd 2021 offered a record jackpot of €210 million, which was also the jackpot cap of the EuroMillions lottery. Since the cap was reached, the jackpot did not grow any further and it was won on the following draw.
According to the current EuroMillions rules, once the cap of €210 million was reached, a new cap is set at €220 million. So, the EuroMillions lottery is bound to bring even bigger and better jackpots in the near future.
Besides the lucky Swiss jackpot winner, the draw of Friday, February 26th made some more people happy. Extra funds that would have been added to the jackpot instead had to flow down to the next tier, helping to create more big prizes. After the results of the draw were published, another 12 people from across Europe found out they had enough winning numbers to claim €2,494,703 for themselves and 35 others were also in the money, collecting €11,695 each.
