S. K., a chauffeur from Moscow, won the jackpot when he played the Austria Lotto online on 24 February 2016. He correctly matched the drawn numbers 4, 17, 18, 23, 31, 40 and Bonus Number (“Zusatzzahl”) 20. S. has officially collected his €824K win in Vienna and spoke at length to theLotter’s local team.
“I Only Started Playing Lotteries Online from Russia at theLotter a Few Months Ago!”
Private chauffeur and father-of-three S. K. has been playing Russian state lotteries like Gosloto for a long time and, even though he loves the Gosloto, he wanted more choice, as he told us in a lengthy interview in Austria:
“Thankfully I found out that there were various lottery ticket services online; I started to read information about several companies and I opted for theLotter in August 2015. And, as you can see, I was very successful.”
“Tatiana, Look How Much Money We’ve Won!”
S. played various lotteries in Europe and elsewhere for a few months, when, early 2016 he tried his luck in the Austria Lotto. As usual, he picked his numbers in a random manner. Then, when he came home from work in the evening, he opened his laptop and saw that he’d won.
“My first thought was that I’d won 680 thousand. Then I looked again and saw that I’d hit the jackpot. I immediately called my wife to the computer and I said: “Tatiana, look, how much money we’ve won!” I guess you could say that we were prepared for the phone call from theLotter, but still… I lost 3.5 kilos in two days – that is how excited I was.”
S. really lit up when we asked him what he was going to do with his new-found wealth!
“We have already agreed in the family: the kids will get their apartments, we will buy a country house for us, a car… and I’m also going to help a young boy who is suffering from cancer with part of the money.
Of course I will continue to play, because I want to come back to Austria – or maybe to London one day, when I win again. But just now, before I flew to Vienna to pick up the jackpot, I played the Austrian lottery from Russia again.”
What a wonderful man, what a wonderful story! Once again, our congratulations to S., who now joins theLotter’s Hall of Fame – a place which is becoming more and more crowded lately. Since the company was founded in 2002, theLotter has helped players from all over the world win more than $50 million in lottery prizes, but especially during the last few months success stories are pouring in. An Iraqi player won $6.4 million in the Oregon Megabucks, a Canadian won $1 million in the Powerball, a pensioner from El Salvador won $1 million in the Powerball and now S. joins the long list of online lottery prize winners.
