British lottery winner gets record 129 mln euros 5 years, 9 months ago #1285

LONDON (AFP) – A ticket-holder in Britain has won a record 129 million euros (181 million dollars) on the Euromillions lottery, organisers said, although nobody has yet come forward to claim the prize. The winning ticket netted a total of 129,818,431 euros. The previous highest winner was a Spanish player who in May 2009 won 126,231,764 euros. "This is fantastic news -- we're absolutely delighted to have such a massive UK win," a spokeswoman for Camelot, the operator of the British national lottery and one of the original launch partners in Euromillions, said. "This is the biggest lottery jackpot prize ever paid out to an individual in this country. We have plenty of champagne on ice." Friday night's winner was the only one of tens of millions of players to tick all seven correct numbers across two different grills -- claiming the prize against odds of 76,275,360 to one. The Euromillions lottery, launched in 2004, is now played by nine countries across western Europe: Austria, Belgium, Britain, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
