Lottery winners in Spain, France share 130 mil. euros

PARIS--A Spanish and a French punter on Tuesday shared more than 130 million euros (US$177 million) in the EuroMillions draw, with the jackpot swelled after 10 consecutive draws without a winner.

Organisers La Francaise des Jeux (FDJ) said the lucky pair would pocket more than 65 million euros each.

The new millionaires have 60 days to claim their haul.

The EuroMillions lottery, launched in 2004, is now played by nine countries across western Europe: Austria, Belgium, Britain, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

The record jackpot for a European lottery is 190 million euros won by British couple Adrian and Gillian Bayford in August 2012.
