German Player Claims €32.6 Million Eurojackpot Prize
A German player from Baden-Württemberg who scooped a €32.6 million Eurojackpot prize on Friday 13th November has come forward to claim their incredible windfall. The winner, one half of a married couple, bought their life-changing entry in Heilbronn.
The ticket holder matched the winning numbers of 19, 23, 26, 27 and 49 with Euro numbers 3 and 10 after purchasing €14 worth of tickets. As the winner’s partner typically checked all the Eurojackpot entries they purchased at the end of each month, two weeks passed before the couple realised they were now multimillionaires! They had heard the news that someone in their area had won all while the winning ticket was sitting in their home. Speaking to lottery officials, they said that they weren’t sure what to do with the money right away, but that they definitely intended to give back to their local community.
In the same draw, another player from Slovakia matched five main numbers and one Euro number to win €1,406,004. Have a look at the Eurojackpot Results page to view full prize breakdowns from the game on Friday 13th November as well as all recent draws.
