Hessian wins highest Lotto profit ever.
This is the highest single win in German lottery history ever, ever, ever. On Friday evening, a tipper from Hesse won the jackpot in the EuroJackpot lottery and can now enjoy the gigantic winning sum of 58.693.173.90 euros.
This lottery player from Hesse has managed the feat of being the only one in the whole of Europe – after all, EuroJackpot is organized in 16 European countries at the same time – to mark the 5 correct winning numbers and the two correct Euro numbers on his ticket. The winning numbers last Friday were 11, 25, 32, 42 and 47 and the Euro numbers were 4 and 9.
This means that he won prize category 1 all by himself and is now almost 59 million. EUR richer. This year's Christmas celebrations in a household in the German state of Hesse are likely to be a little more lavish than usual as a result.
With the gigantic sum from 58.693.173.90 euros this Lotto player has also entered the history books. No one has ever won so much money in one go in the history of the lottery in Germany. This is the lonely top.
The previous record was 46.1 million euros. This win also went to a tipper from Hesse in April 2023. The state of Hesse seems to be a very good place for jackpot hunters. That this is the same lottery player who also won big on Friday, there is nothing to indicate so far. That would also be a little unfair, although such a thing is of course statistically quite possible, because every player and every combination of numbers always has the same chances in every draw.
On a European scale, however, there is still a little room for improvement. The highest jackpot of all times went with 61,2 Mio. Euro in September this year to a lottery player from Finland. Also this had cleared in the Lotterie EuroJackpot as the only one the profit class 1.
Who also would like to try his luck, which has already on the coming Friday for it the opportunity. Then it's EuroJackpot 10 million euros looking for a new home.
And already on Wednesday 11 million euro wait with Lotto 6 from 49 for a lucky winner.
