Stockholm couple win huge Svenska Spel jackpot

STOCKHOLM, SWE – A 50 year old couple from Stockholm have won a major lottery prize from Svenska Spel (the Swedish Lottery operator). The prize amount they won was SEK79.5 million ($10.85m, £7m).

The jackpot won by the couple is the eleventh highest “dream-prize” won in Svenska Spel’s history. The lottery operator has been busy looking for the winning couple since the draw was made. The winners, who preferred to remain anonymous were found on Friday.

The dream payout came as a result of the winners choosing the seven correct numbers in the Lotto series and two right numbers in the Joker series. The odds of getting all seven numbers correct are one in 6,724,520, while the odds of winning any prize, or getting at least four numbers correct, are 55 to one.

The largest windfall ever paid out in Svenska Spel history was an amount of over 214.5 million kronor, which was distributed to a single winner in southern Skåne in March.
