Α New Millionaire in Cyprus
Joker Gold winner of the big prize of 10 mln Euros.
A Punter from Cyprus is the Gold winner of the big prize of 10 mln Euros in the Joker, the third highest winning in four years.
The lucky card, worth only 10 euro was presented to the agent Peter Athanasiadis in Lakatamia. The winning numbers are: 2, 4, 6, 12, 40 and Joker number 9.
The same game awarded a record 19 mln Euros in April 2010, while three winners shared the 14 mln euro prize on Christmas Eve in 2006.
Demos Ellinas, Chief Financial Officer at OPAP Cyprus, told the Financial Mirror that a total of 10 mln coupons were played in Sunday’s Joker when the big prize stood at 8 mln Euros and Cypriots accounted for 18-19% of bets. Cypriots were once again the biggest punters in the latest Lotto, accounting for 20% of all coupons played, while a Cypriot also won the last Proto prize of 805,000 Euros.
