Gibraltar-based lottery betting operator Lottoland has officially been handed the Guinness World Records title for the largest online gambling payout.
The Guinness World Records certificate was handed to the operator this week for its record €90m payout on June 1st to a German player on Lottoland.com.
The company secured the title of Largest Online Gambling Pay-out after a 36-year old cleaner from Berlin, identified only as Christina, placed a bet on the Eurojackpot lottery via her mobile. Her mother chose the five lucky numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) which matched and brought her the record-breaking win.
“We are absolutely delighted to achieve a Guinness World Record,” said Lottoland chief executive Nigel Birrell. “It’s such an accolade to find ourselves in this hall of fame. This title is a confirmation of our business model, it proves that we are able to even break world records thanks to our sophisticated insurance model.
“At Lottoland, we are in the business of making dreams come true. Therefore, we are always thrilled that we just completely changed the life of one of our players completely. We pride ourselves on paying out even the biggest wins within record time and are more than happy to help Christina and her mum to fulfil their dreams.”
Guinness World Records official adjudicator Sofia Greenacre commented: “I’m pleased to confirm that Lottoland did indeed manage to set a new Guinness World Records title for the largest online gambling pay-out, which now stands at an incredible €90,000,000. My congratulations go out to all those who took part, you are officially amazing.”
