HAPPY WEEKEND FOR SPANISH LOTTO PLAYER
 
Euro 123 million jackpot wonin Friday's Euro Millions draw
 
Somewhere in Spain a Euro Millions lottery player is celebrating….or perhaps stressing over his or her claiming procedures…having hit the Euro Millions jackpot for Euro 123 million on Friday.
 
One lucky ticket sold in Spain hit the jackpot for the entire amount, defeating almost impossible odds generated by millions of punters across 11 participating countries who bought tickets for the massive rollover jackpot.
 
"This huge jackpot has been really exciting for players all over the UK and Europe," a spokesman for the UK National Lottery said.  "Even though a UK player wasn't lucky enough to scoop the big one this time, Euro Millions Millionaire Raffle has created two millionaires here in the UK this week."
 
In the United Kingdom, Euro Millions players are automatically entered in a raffle drawing that is guaranteed to produce two winners of GBP1 million each week.
 
The winning numbers for the Friday, May 13, Euro Millions drawing were 9, 11, 17, 36, and 47, with Lucky Stars numbers 1 and 2.
