According to DR.dk, the winner will get more than 315 million krone (about 42.2 million euros).
The winning ticket was purchased in one of the supermarkets in the town of Helsingr on the island of Zealand. “At the moment, we do not have any idea who has won. Maybe this person also hasn’t realized yet that he won the jackpot because not everyone checks their tickets immediately after the drawing,”- said an employee of EuroJackpot.
However, according to him, the lottery representatives are not going to wait for the winner at the office and in the coming days they will go to the store where the winning ticket was purchased. They are hoping that the winner of the jackpot will first go there as well.
Prior to that, the largest amount won in Denmark in October of 2012 was 135 million krone (18 million euros). Then, the EuroJackpot lottery winner turned up a week later.
EuroJackpot is a European lottery that was established in 2012. The official drawing group includes Germany, Denmark, Spain, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Finland, Croatia, Sweden and Estonia.
