Lottery player wins third largest scoop in Poland to date

A lottery player from the city of Suwałki in north eastern Poland has scooped the third biggest win in the history of the game, winning PLN 30, 216 854.10 (EUR 7, 257 million).

Saturday's draw in Poland's so-called Lotto had seen a considerable build up, as no one had won since 17 January, despite draws being held thrice weekly.

The lucky player paid PLN 32 (EUR 7.6) to take part in Saturday's edition, choosing the numbers 5, 14, 34, 36, 38 and 41.

Those were precisely the numbers that came through.

No further details are known about the player, but the winner has 60 days to claim the prize.

The Polish Lotto game was started in 1957 by the Polish Sports Association.

The biggest win to date was in 2012 in Gdynia, northern Poland, with a scoop of PLN 33, 787 496,10 zł (EUR 8,1 million), followed by PLN 30, 927 429,60 (EUR 7,4 million) in Bolesławiec, western Poland, also in 2012
