Secondary lottery group claims title for the biggest online gambling pay-out yet

The Guinness World Records organisation has confirmed that a Euro 90 million Lottoland winner in Germany is now officially the recipient of the biggest ever online gambling pay-out.

On June 1 the Lottoland online punter scooped the EuroJackpot top prize of Euro 90 million at Lottoland, an achievement relived this week with the presentation of the official Guinness record certificate.

The big winner has been identified as Christina, a 36-year old cleaner from Berlin, who placed a bet on the Eurojackpot lottery via her mobile on Her mother chose the five lucky numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) which matched and delivered the record-breaking win.

Nigel Birrell, CEO at Gibraltar-based Lottoland, said Wednesday:

“We are absolutely delighted to achieve a Guinness World Record, It’s such an accolade to find ourselves in this hall of fame. it proves that we are able to even break world records thanks to our sophisticated insurance model.”

Guinness World Records official adjudicator Sofia Greenacre said:

“I’m pleased to confirm that Lottoland did indeed manage to set a new world record title for the largest online gambling pay-out, which now stands at Euro 90,000,000.”

Launched in 2013, Lottoland employs 350 people and boasts over eight million punters on its books. The primary aim of the company is to offer customers a broad choice of high jackpot games – currently around 30 lotteries from around the world – or to play jackpot games drawn hourly. To-date Lottoland players have won more than Euro 1 billion on its website, the company claims.

The company also offers the opportunity to win the world’s largest prize on a scratch card at Euro 10 million and the world’s largest prize on an instant win game with “Bingo Jackpot” at Euro 30 million.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
