Participating in a lottery draw is very exciting. Although the winning odds of the Jackpot are low, you can still win. This has been proven by the Lotto draw of August 15, 2020. On Saturday two players won the Jackpot! Both had the six right numbers and shared a Jackpot of 3.3 million euros.
Two times the lucky number
Not one, but two lucky winners: that is definitely unique. One of the lucky winners lives in Ermelo and the other in Rotterdam.The two Lotto players had the winning numbers 7-9-14-19-27-32. As a result, they’ve won 1.650.000 million euros.
Millionaires in the middle of the summer
‘In the middle of the summer vacations you are suddenly a millionaire, you don’t expect that’, Sander van de Vooren reacted. He’s the prizewinner guide of Lotto. Van de Vooren: ‘The lucky winners are invited to visit our office in Rijswijk for ‘First Aid for Happiness’. The winners receive advice and guidance on the newly acquired wealth.
The Lotto Jackpot of more than 3 million euros is a gross cash prize. This means that there’s a gambling tax of 30.1%. The two winners remain anonymous. Lotto puts the privacy of winners first and therefore never announces their names.
