May has been a wonderful month for a resident of the city of Groningen. A few weeks ago he could name himself as the lucky winner of the Lotto Jackpot. An incredible 5.1 million euros will now be added to his bank account! The event took place during the second draw on ‘Super Saturday’. Lotto always organizes two draws on the last Saturday of the month.
What were the lucky numbers?
The lucky winner has a Lotto subscription. He had been playing for a while until he bought the Lotto ticket with the winning numbers 7, 16, 21, 24, 25 and 36. The last time that a resident of Groningen won the Lotto has been a year ago, in June 2017. Back then he or she won 1 million euros.
The Lotto Jackpot has also been won earlier this year, in March. So it was about time for a new winner! He does have to pay a gambling tax on his Jackpot win though. Even after taxes there will still be some millions left, so he won’t be sad about it.
The simple rules of the Lotto
The Lotto is a household name in the Netherlands. The simple rules make the lottery a popular way to gamble. Every Lotto player has to pick six numbers out of a 1 to 45 range. There’s a draw on every Saturday in which six numbers out of 45 appear. You win the Jackpot if these numbers match with those on your ticket. The draw isn’t over with the regular numbers. You have an extra chance to win, because another number is drawn out of the 39 balls that are left.
Test your luck with Lotto XL
Do you have a feeling that you’ll be very lucky real soon? Then test your luck with the Lotto XL draw. It’s just as exciting as the regular Lotto draw. Again six numbers and one bonus number are drawn. You win one million euros if the numbers of Lotto XL match with those on your ticket. Good luck!
