Switzerland Hauls in EuroMillions Jackpot

Most of this year's EuroMillions jackpots have been claimed by players in Spain and France, and a player in the UK recently scooped the second biggest win of the year and picked up a check for €129,384,564. The rest of Europe has so far been sadly neglected when it comes to jackpot prizes. All that changed on Friday when a EuroMillions player from Switzerland matched the five numbers and two powerballs required to win the €25,493,153 jackpot.

The last time Switzerland claimed a notable Euromillions win was August 23, 2013, when a Swiss ticket, purchased by an anonymous player from the Canton of Valais, won the entire €93,948,087 jackpot.
