Belgian wins 142 million euros in euromillions lottery

A EuroMillions jackpot winner is a Belgian man or woman. Only one person has ever declared the five correct numbers and two stars, winning at least 142,897,000 euros. The National Lottery reported this on Tuesday 6 december 2022.

One of the biggest Belgium Euromillions winner

A Belgian who used the EuroMillions combination 8+12 scored a jackpot of over 142 million euros on Tuesday. This is the highest jackpot amount offered by Euromillions, which can never exceed 230 million euros. A Belgian narrowly missed out on a record €230 million jackpot earlier this year. A Belgian answered five questions correctly with one star and a winning prize of 4.4 million euros. A British national won the next big prize.

Euromillions started in 2004

EuroMillions pays out higher winnings than what national lotteries can offer. It was founded in 2004 as a partnership between nine European lotteries. One Belgian won a Mega Jackpot of more than 153 million euros in 2017; and someone from Schaerbeek won at least 168 in 2016.

A winner's ticket displays the National Bank's phone number and a beep when inserted into a vending machine. The symbols alert the public to their victory and show starbursts on the screen. After this, a representative from the bank makes an appointment to receive the prize. However, neither the public nor the newsagent hosting the contest knows who won or how much they won.
