It has now been confirmed that the EuroMillions draw on 8 May 2009 did result in the single biggest jackpot winner ever.
And not just the biggest jackpot ever for the EuroMillions – but the biggest jackpot in the world won by one single winner.
So Who Won?
That winner has been revealed as a 25 year old woman living in Majorca, who is now about €126 Million richer. Her name has not been revealed (and very wise too – folks, when you win big decline the publicity unless you want your life to become a complete circus!).
It’s a real shame that money wasn’t split over lots of different winners. After all, what can you do with €126 Million that you can’t do with €10 Million?!
Although according to the UK Telegraph newspaper, it does make her instantly richer than the Bee Gees!
Those winning EuroMillions numbers were 4, 29, 23, 31, 24 and Lucky Stars 9 and 8.
