The EuroMillion Lottery Jackpot has finally been claimed. The jackpot prize was worth a massive £114 Million. It has been confirmed as a single ticket win by a Portuguese Lottery player.
The value of the lottery jackpot win in Euros is €163,553,041. Portuguese EuroMillion players do of course get paid their winnings in Euros.
This was the 11th consecutive draw since the last EuroMillion Jackpot paid out. The jackpot prize includes a EuroMillion Super Draw top-up.
British EuroMillion players did manage to win some consolation prizes in the draw. Three UK EuroMillion tickets managed to match 5 numbers and 1 lucky star.
This means a payday of £276,669.50 for the winning lottery tickets.
Now that the main lottery jackpot prize has been won, the lottery’s value resets back to its default level of £10 Million.
The one downside of a Portuguese EuroMillion Lottery Jackpot win is that Portugal imposes a 20% Lottery Winners Tax.
That means that the winning ticket holder will pay an estimated €32,7 Million tax bill.
We are sure that they won’t mind that and leaves them with a further €131 Million to do what they please with.
All is not least for the rest of the weekend. There are still a host of Slot Jackpots to play for.
