A player from Finland won the top spot in the Eurojackpot draw last Friday, February 17th. This direct hit brings the lucky guy around 40 million euros.
In many places in Germany there has been a lot of hustle and bustle in the past few days. This carnival tradition does not exist in Finland. However, Shrove Tuesday is celebrated there as “Laskiainen” – literally “Fastnacht”. The last day before Lent is spent with sleigh rides, tobogganing and snowball fights.
However, a euro jackpot player from Finland will remember these days for a completely different reason: With the numbers 5, 12, 15, 21, 39 and the euro numbers 3 and 4, he was the only one in Europe to be spot on and thus landed in the first prize category . This is the 111th jackpot won since the lottery started in March 2012. Thanks to his bet, the lucky Finn can now call 40,254,187.60 euros his own. This makes him the 50th Finnish millionaire at Eurojackpot.
