€17 Million Lottery Jackpot Cracked

One very lucky -- and now very rich -- person from Lower Saxony won half of nearly €17 million ($20.5 million) in Germany's lottery on Wednesday. The other half of the jackpot, which accumulated over six draws, will be shared by a pool of 111 players in the German state of Saarland. The 112 winners got all six numbers right as well as the seventh "super number" that was already printed on their lottery tickets. The pool winners, who each paid €4.25 for their part, will each get €75,000. Around a million people are thought to have played to win the jackpot. The highest jackpot ever won in Germany was in 1994, when four players shared 21.6 million after 11 draws.
