A cleaning lady from Germany breaks the Guinness World Record for the largest online betting payout in history. She scooped a striking £79 million on Lottoland.
The 36-year-old Christina won the magnificent prize on 1st June. She placed a bet on the Eurojackpot lottery draw using the numbers 14, 19, 21, 30, 32 as well as 4 and 7 as lucky numbers. All the numbers were selected by her mother.
Thanks to the lucky woman from Berlin, Lottoland.co.uk has now secured a place in the World Record.
The online gambling site allows visitors to wager on the results of more than 30 lotteries worldwide. Having more than 8 million customers, it pays out from insurance money if a player manages to match all of the winning numbers from an actual draw.
“We are absolutely delighted to achieve a Guinness World Record. It’s such an accolade to find ourselves in this hall of fame,” stated Nigel Birrell, CEO of Lottoland.
“This title is a confirmation of our business model, it proves that we are able to even break world records thanks to our sophisticated insurance model.
“At Lottoland, we are in the business of making dreams come true. Therefore, we are always thrilled that we just completely changed the life of one of our players completely.
“We pride ourselves on paying out even the biggest wins within record time and are more than happy to help Christina and her mum to fulfil their dreams.”
Sofia Greenacre, official adjudicator of Guinness World Records, said: “I’m pleased to confirm that Lottoland did indeed manage to set a new Guinness World Records title for the largest online gambling pay-out, which now stands at an incredible €90,000,000.
“My congratulations go out to all those who took part – you are OFFICIALLY AMAZING.”
