The Venetian purchased their ticket for just €4.50 ahead of the SuperEnalotto draw on Tuesday 1st August. The winning playslip was sold at the Sisal Tabaccheria Filippi outlet in Viale Santa Margherita in the seaside resort of Caorle and correctly matched the numbers 1, 8, 28, 54, 82 and 90 to land the eight-figure sum.
Why the Jackpot Winner Left it so Long
Despite wishing to remain nameless, the lucky ticket holder did inform lottery officials that they had not forgotten about the prize, but was instead eager to organise their finances before coming forward. They also stated that they needed to consider their family before making themselves known to staff at the Sisal collection office. Despite their late claim, the victor was still well within the 90 day claim period.
In securing their prize, the fortuitous lottery fan successfully ended a run of 67 rollovers to win the first SuperEnalotto jackpot since February, when a player from Mestrino in Padua picked up a prize worth over €93.7 million.
