No matter what’s happening all around us, there’s always something special about December. The air gets fresher (unless you live in Malta), the parties start piling in, the Christmas lights go up and it all culminates in one hell of a festive week at the end. But for one Maltese person, it’s also meant a whole lotta extra money.
Matching five out of the eight drawn numbers in the Lotto Quaterno Plus draw, the man just took home €400,000.
Talk about a Lucky Christmas!
The winning ticket was bought from Mosta on Wednesday 20th November, and the man had actually chosen his own numbers… making this win all the more special. Want a bonus? They weren’t even his go-to numbers, with the winner saying he prefers to change his set of numbers “every now and then”.
“I was watching the news and saw the Lotto result appearing on screen,” the man said. “Initially, I thought that the numbers drawn looked familiar but did not realise I had won the Jackpot. I had to check the ticket a few times before I could believe that I had actually matched the five numbers!”
Awesome! We’re not jealous at all, promise.
The next Lotto Quaterno Plus draw is this Saturday 7th December, with a cool jackpot of €260,000.
The game is played with a field of numbers from 1 to 90 and is drawn in conjunction with Saturday’s Lotto.
This was the third time that the first category LOTTO QUATERNO PLUS jackpot has been won during 2019. This category has been guessed on another two different occasions during the month of May, with the winners claiming a jackpot of €820,000 and €250,000 respectively.
