A man from southern Germany has won a record 90 million euros (98 million dollars) in the EuroJackpot draw, the highest-ever lotto win in Germany.
The winner from the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg cracked the earlier German EuroJackpot record of 84.8 million euros set in August, German regional lotto firm Westlotto said in Munster on Friday.
The last ten drawings had not produced a winner, allowing the jackpot to reach the maximum sum of 90-million-euro mark.
The EuroJackpot is available in 17 countries: Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
The draw takes place every Friday in the Finnish capital Helsinki.
