A lucky Faroe Islander has won no less than DKK 20 million in Danske Spil’s Lotto, reports Faroese news web site Portal.fo.

The winning mega millions lottery ticket was allegedly sold in the Effo gas station in the village of Tvøroyri on Suðuroy. According to Danske Spil the lucky person, who has become a millionaire overnight, has not yet identified him/herself.

Kringvarp Føroya writes that only one ticket matched all seven numbers, and therefore the Faroese winner will have the entire 20 million Kr on his own.

Like all other lottery winners, the lucky Faroe Islander will receive financial guidance, writes Portal.fo.
