theLotter EuroMillions Winners: Hungarian Player Wins €489,777

A Hungarian player joined theLotter's EuroMillions Winners Club when he scored a €489,777 prize in the EuroMillions lottery draw  staged 18 October 2013. The winner, I.K., had been playing at theLotter for one year when he won the big prize.

I.K. was just one number off winning the €15 million EuroMillions starting jackpot when he matched six of the seven balls selected in the Friday night draw. The EuroMillions lotto results were 5, 25, 36, 46 and 47, with the two additional Lucky Stars coming out as 2 and 6. I.K. won the second division prize as he matched the five main numbers but only one of the Lucky Stars. His selection was 5 and 6. If the 5 had been a 2, he would have won the jackpot.

The Hungarian winner started to play the lottery online in November 2012. A particularly focused player, his strategy was to pick his three favourite big lotteries (US Powerball, EuroJackpot  and EuroMillions) and to play each consistently.

The winning EuroMillions ticket was purchased by I.K. as part of a multi-draw package, the best way to save on advance lottery ticket purchases while ensuring you never miss a draw!
