Rome, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Aug, 2019 ) :A lucky ticket-holder in Italy has won the country's biggest ever lottery jackpot of 209 million Euros ($234 million), the Superenalotto organisers said Wednesday.
The winner had chosen the numbers at random from a lottery machine at the bar.
"How can we know who bought it... There was a constant flow today, people were coming in and asking for a ticket at random.
And I printed it (the winning ticket), I printed it," the bar's manager, Guglielmo Poggi, told Italian media.
The new record also surpasses that of Euromillions, where the jackpot is limited to 190 million euros. That amount has been won three times - in Britain in August 2012, in Portugal in October 2014 and in Spain in October 2017.
