Maria from St. Julians is walking on air after discovering that she has won €97,000 on the EuroMillions from Malta! She had taken out a subscription on the EuroMillions with lottery betting site,, when 5 of her numbers came up, landing her a small fortune.

She'd had her subscription for less than 6 months and had already won €9.00 and €21.00, but did not think for a minute she would win such a huge amount.


So, how did she respond when she received the phone call telling her she had won?

"I said 'You must be joking, are you sure it's €97,000 and not €9,700?' I still didn't believe it. After the call, I made my husband check my account to see if it was true.'

When asked what she is going to spend it on, she replied:

"Well, it's not just for me. I've got my husband to look after, I've got my son and my granddaughter, so it's a family affair. If it was only me, I'd spend it all tomorrow! I'm lucky I suppose, God helped me to win all that. But I think if everything is alright health-wise, we'll go abroad for a bit."

Does she have any advice to Maltese lottery fans?

"Make sure that you play, and that you get your numbers in. I've got 2 lines going with Jackpot.comand I'm going to put another 2 lines, so I'll have 4 lines going. I'm trying my luck!
