Italian village of 2 000 souls rife with speculation on winner
The village of Bagnone in Tuscany, Italy broke into spontaneous celebration (and some speculation) Saturday night as the news came through that the record breaking Euro 147 807 299.08 main prize of the SuperEnalotto had at last been won.
Lottery officials revealed that the winner had bought the lucky numbers ticket at a bar in the village, setting the two thousand strong population alight with speculation on who the lucky winner was. The identity of the winner, according to the Agicos agency , was being kept secret.
The winning six-number combination was 2, 16, 38, 67, 70 and 84, the national lottery agency said, and the chances of getting all those digits right were only one in 622 million. The main prize had rolled over a record-breaking 86 times since January 2009, creating a frenzy of European interest and ticket buying.
Villager Giuliano Di Bernardo, interviewed by the ANSA news agency, said he had seen the winner, a 47-year-old local man, buy the winning ticket.
The next draw is on Tuesday, when the jackpot will be slightly less than $61 million.
