Million-euro lottery prize lands in Paterna
News staff reporter A BRAND-NEW millionnaire is walking around Paterna (L'Horta Oest) thanks to Friday's EuroMillions draw, but the winner's identity has not been revealed.
The lucky ticket carried the number 82.050 and the code SMC29264, and was sold at the lottery shop on the C/ Mayor.
Prize numbers for Friday's weekly lottery included 41, 33, 17, 12 and 5, with bonus numbers of 4 and 9 and a total jackpot of just over €54.2 million.
The Paterna winner took home exactly €1m, although recent laws now mean that he or she will have to hand over between €200,000 and €210,000 of it in tax.
Only one ticket won the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday with five correct numbers and two bonus balls – a UK resident who is now €28.7m better off.
Second prize, with ticket number 94.450, landed in Madrid and won its owner nearly €357,000.
