Guinness World Records confirms Lottoland achieved the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest online gambling pay-out
On June 1 a lucky winner from Germany scooped the EuroJackpot top prize of EUR90 million (AUD$137m) at Lottoland – now Guinness World Records have confirmed the jackpot is the Largest online gambling pay-out in history. The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS certificate was officially handed to Lottoland yesterday.
The company secured the title of “Largest Online Gambling Pay-out” after Christina, a 36-year old cleaner from Berlin, had placed a bet on the Eurojackpot lottery via her mobile on www.lottoland.com. Her mother chose the five lucky numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) which matched and brought her this record-breaking win.
Luke Brill, CEO at Lottoland Australia, said: “We are absolutely delighted to achieve a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. It’s such an accolade to find ourselves in this hall of fame. 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.”
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official adjudicator Sofia Greenacre 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 EUR90,000,000. My congratulations go out to all those who took part, you are OFFICIALLY AMAZING.”
