So whether this still remain to be a record will depend on the circumstances and agreements in place for the 15 lucky recipients.
The winning numbers for this EuroMillions draw were 6, 16, 30, 38 and 41, and lucky stars 2 and 4. Although this is the biggest lottery payout to a single ticket in France, the European record goes to Italy where the lucky winner of €147 million in August is still unknown.
The lucky winners of this latest EuroMillions lottery superdraws jackpot beat about 40 million other lottery players to the prize, with odds of 1 in 76 million. Three EuroMillions players from the UK managed to match all five main numbers and one lucky star, bagging them £360,000 each. Five other tickets from the UK matched five main numbers to win £59,000. The next EuroMillions draw sees the jackpot reset to its starting point of €13 million.
