While it was a good night for every winner, the glory belonged to the single ticket holder from Poland. The Polish National Lottery announced the next day that the winner had purchased their entry in the Mazovian Voivodeship province.

Eurojackpot only went on sale in Poland in September 2017 but the country has already crowned a couple of big winners. The first jackpot win in Poland came on 10th May 2019, when a player from Piotrków Trybunalski landed half of a record-equalling €90 million prize. The zl 193 million payout was the largest lottery prize ever seen in the country.
Prior to Friday night’s big win, the jackpot had previously been one just a couple of weeks earlier when a participant from Finland pocketed €34 million on 28th August.
Germany has been the most successful nation in 2020 with three jackpot winners, but the top prize has now been won in six other countries this year - Sweden, Italy, Norway, Spain, Finland and Poland.
The jackpot will now reset to €10 million for the next draw on 18th September. Take part online or visit an authorised retailer, then wait to see where the top prize will go next.
