Last week was extremely good time for playing the lottery on both sides of the pond, as two major lottery games produced jackpot winners. Powerball made someone in Louisiana $55.900.000 richer, while Eurojackpot helped one punter from Norway win a mesmerizing €17.400.000 windfall. Mega Millions players weren’t so fortunate and they’ll have to try their luck again on Tuesday night – a ground-breaking $680.000.000 jackpot awaits in the Mega Millions Max draw.
The winning Powerball numbers on March 24th were 10, 33, 45, 53 and 56, with the Power Ball 24. They were all matched by a single ticket holder from Louisiana, but two players from Florida and Massachusetts also had a reason for celebration. They scooped $1.000.000 each for correctly guessing the five main numbers. This amazing victory comes only a week after a mysterious punter from Pennsylvania snatched $456.700.000. The fortunate millionaire is yet to come forward, but we know at least one thing about them. It was revealed that the winning ticket was purchased at the Speedway store located on Lancaster Road in Manheim, Lancaster County. Lottery executive director Drew Svitko presented the shop with a $100.000 cheque, a sign of gratitude for selling the golden ticket.
When it comes to Eurojackpot, the lucky draw that transformed one player from Norway into an instant millionaire took place on March 23rd. The winning line consisted of the numbers 4, 14, 22, 33 and 42 with the Euro balls 1 and 10. In addition to the jackpot winner, Friday night’s draw also produced seven winners of €425.000 windfall who missed the top prize by one of the bonus numbers. Six of those tickets were bought in Germany, and the remaining one was purchased by a resident of Netherlands. Eurojackpot may be back to its starting jackpot, but Eurojackpot Max isn’t – it always offers a guaranteed prize of €90.000.000!
Lotto players around the continent had a reason for celebration on Friday night, when Euromillions offered one of the most exciting prize pools in recent memory. Two ticket holders from Spain and the UK shared the spectacular jackpot, scooping £77.700.000 each. Spanish prize has been claimed shortly after the draw took place, but the identity of the British winner still remains a mystery.

The winning line that enabled this amazing victory on February 23rd consisted of the numbers 10, 17, 18, 28 and 47, with Lucky Stars 3 and 7. After lottery officials revealed Euromillions results on Friday night two participants from Spain and the UK came out victorious, sharing the £155.500.000 jackpot. Spanish winners didn’t wait too long before coming forward. It was reported that the top prize was claimed by the consortium of 80 members from municipality of Manilva. The representative of their syndicate purchased the golden ticket at the Carrefour Gran Sur-Torres Shopping Centre.
We still don’t know anything about the UK player or how they reacted after finding out they’re about to receive £77.700.000. Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s senior winners’ advisor, was very excited to announce that another Brit became a jackpot millionaire.
“Wow, what a win for one lucky UK ticket holder. This is the tenth biggest winner this country has ever seen and we look forward to toasting their win. As well as one lucky UK player banking a life-changing £77.000.000 share of the jackpot, tonight’s special millionaire event saw seven £1.000.000 winners made in the UK,” said Carter, referring to the special European Millionaire Maker draw that also took place that night.
