Portuguese lotto enthusiasts never fail to amaze us with their incredible luck with games of chance, especially Euromillions. They proved it once again in the last night’s draw, when a single ticket holder from this country snatched a life-changing €36.560.000 fortune. After this amazing victory, the jackpot has been reset to the usual €17.000.000 sum.
The Euromillions numbers which transformed one lucky Portuguese player into the outright winner on August 8th were 15, 25, 26, 40 and 41, along with the Lucky Stars 4 and 5. The jackpot winner may be the only one walking away with €36.560.000, but players who came close to matching all the numbers also had a fairly good reason for celebration this Tuesday night. Four participants (including two from Spain, one from the UK, and one from France) managed to scoop €190.000 each after missing the top prize by only one Lucky Star. Additional five players became €35.000 richer when they correctly guessed the five main numbers.
Portugal has always been known as one of the luckiest countries playing Euromillions – it’s currently in the fourth place on the list of countries with most jackpot wins with a total of 66, only one victory behind the UK, with a total of 67. When it comes to the size of the jackpots won by individual players, Portugal is in the lead – back in October 2014, the largest windfall in the game’s history worth €190.000.000 went to a mysterious punter from Castelo Branco.
Snatching a cash reward this large provides you with an opportunity to spend the rest of your life without ever worrying about the money, and Powerball could help you accomplish this goal. Buy your ticket HERE to end up €259.900.000 richer!
