A EuroMillions fan from Switzerland is now the biggest EuroMillions winner of all times after landing the €210 million jackpot in the draw of February 26th, 2021. The numbers on their ticket matched the winning numbers of the draw: 6, 12, 22, 29 and 33, with Lucky Stars 6 and 11. The lucky ticket holder will have no more worries in his life from now on, except maybe what to do with such an amount of money. They will also have to decide whether to stay anonymous or go public with their story, but who would worry about such hassles when winning €210 million?
The player only had one chance in 139,838,160 different combinations to discover the winning combination. But, as luck would have it, the fortunate Swiss player beat the EuroMillions odds and became the biggest EuroMillions winner to date. The previous record was held by a Frenchman living in the south of France who had won €200 million in the draw of December 11th, thus becoming the 400th fortune in France.
It has been a record winter for the EuroMillions lottery! This amazing win came after a Superdraw that took place on February 5th and offered a €130 million jackpot. As no ticket matched the winning numbers, draw after draw, the jackpot continued to grow until it reached the €210 million cap. This was the jackpot offered on the draw of Tuesday, February 23rd 2021. When the EuroMillions results were published, it turned out that it was another rollover. Yet, the following Friday, the winning numbers were matched by the lucky Swiss player.
The jackpot cap will now increase to €220 million, raising the bar for the second time in less than three months. It could well be that another record is broken before too long. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your ticket right now to try and snap up one of the wonderful EuroMillions prizes.
