EuroMillions Superdraw €100 Million Jackpot Goes to… PORTUGAL!

Mar 8, 2015

One Portuguese lottery player from Margaride had the luckiest Friday of his life as he won the first prize in the EuroMillions Superdraw: an amount of €100 million!

The man (or woman) was the only one who had picked the correct combination of numbers and stars and thus he stole away the top Superdraw jackpot of €100 million. Nine winners matched five numbers and one star and each won a little over €300,000.

This is the 55th Portuguese punter taking home that coveted EuroMillions top prize! Together the Portuguese have won a massive €1,423,664,242.11 in EuroMillions jackpots!

Unfortunately the winner will have to cough up 20% of the jackpot in taxes to the Portuguese State, but with €80 million left in his/her pocket, we doubt this is a major concern for this lottery champion.

The EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday, March 6th, 2015, produced the following numbers: 23, 30, 47, 49, 50 and stars 2 & 7!

You Thought €100 Million Was a Lot? Think Again!

One hundred million is a huge amount, but it is not even close to being the largest sum ever won in the EuroMillions lottery. The largest ever EuroMillions jackpot was a staggering €190 million. In fact, this amount, which is the maximum EuroMillions jackpot as a cap is put in place at that stage, was won by a UK resident in July 2011 as well as in October 2014 by yet another Portuguese player (from the town of Castelo Branco). A €187 million jackpot was shared by a Belgian and an Irish player in June 2013, and Neil Trotter from the UK won £108 million almost exactly one year ago, on March 14th, 2014.
