Brit scoops enormous German lotto win after using online gambling site to buy ticket
A lucky Englishman has won €31.7 million, after scooping the enormous jackpot on another country’s lottery.
The anonymous winner, a player on the Tipp24.com website, matched the six winning numbers of 3, 4, 23, 30, 43 and 44, as well as the bonus number of 6 on the German state lottery.
The website is a licensed broker of online lottery betting, providing customers the opportunity to bet on the outcome of a variety of European lotteries – including the EuroMillions too.
Ulf Teuber, managing director of Tipp24, said: "We are very happy for our customer. To our knowledge, this is the highest jackpot prize ever won online in the United Kingdom.”
The winner, a 33-year-old man, was apparently informed of his prize Wednesday evening via SMS and email.
