Swedish woman wins 20,8 million Euro


It was barely two weeks ago now that the Swedish woman bet 22kr on the local lottery in Sweden – and won 208 million kronor. This roughly translates to 20,8 million euro.

The local lottery in Sweden is called Svenska Spel and it’s the government that owns it. Svenska Spel involves all kind of gambling in Sweden at the moment and they own all rights to gambling, this is why all the Swedish casinos are based on Malta. But with the new gambling laws that will apply in 2019 this will probably change.

It was early on the wednesday evening about two weeks ago and the Swedish woman from Partille decided to play on the local lottery, it was kind of a tradition for her and the family, which turned out to definitely pay off. After betting 22kr (2,2 euro) she managed to hit 7 right numbers followed by two right on the joker which gave her the massive win.

Such an insanely big amount of money must make you pinch yourself several times before you understand that it’s actually real. We asked Svenska Spel for a comment on the winnings, “For anyone who wins hundreds of millions you can simply not just accept it at first. You don’t really understand. It’s a fear mixed with delight and they need some time to process the insane amounts of money.” – Pierre Jonsson from Svenska Spel

It was the third biggest win at Svenska Spel ever, the 237 millions that a player from Norrköping won in 2013 still stands at the top as the record.
