After 25 weeks without a jackpot winner, the historic €101.70 million jackpot of Spain's La Primitiva lottery was finally won on Thursday.
The winning ticket was purchased in a store on Barcelona's famous Calle Pere IV, so, in all likelihood, the person who matched the six main numbers as well as the reintegro was a Catalan!
DÉU N'HI DO! The winner won €101.70 million!
Unfortunately this lucky Catalan will have to pay quite a bit in taxes to the central tax authorities in Madrid though. In Spain, lottery prizes over €2,500 fall in the 20% tax bracket, meaning that the winner will net €80 million in the end. Still... €80 million is not a bad bank balance by anyone's standards!
Numbers Drawn for the La Primitiva on Thursday 15 October 2015
The numbers drawn at this historic La Primitiva event were: 1, 7, 21, 27, 38, and 46 with extra number 41 and reintegro 6.
A total of 30 million lottery tickets were sold for this draw. This new €101.70 million La Primitiva record beats the previous record jackpot of €72.6 million from February 2014!
