Irish winners anonymously claim €86m EuroMillions jackpot

September 30, 2014, 8:44 am ET

Ireland's newest millionaires have claimed their €86.7 million (US$109.2 million) winnings but will be keeping their identities a secret for now.

The National Lottery has confirmed a syndicate (pool) from Dublin collected their EuroMillions fortune from its offices in Dublin city center yesterday.

It was announced after the draw last Friday that the €86.7m prize had been won in Ireland. It is the third biggest win in the history of the National Lottery. (See $111 million EuroMillions jackpot won in Ireland, Lottery Post, Sep. 22, 2014.)

Slot machine saves German gambler as police arrive

September 29, 2014, 7:08 am ET

Police said Thursday that two officers carrying out routine checks at an arcade in the western city of Bochum, Germany, late last week discovered that a man playing a slot machine faced an arrest warrant.

He had been ordered to pay a €710 (US$910) fine or go to prison for 71 days after resisting police during a previous incident.

Police say that as officers informed the man that he faced arrest, the slot machine started to flash and the beaming 37-year-old won a jackpot of €1,000 (about US$1,300).

The man paid his fine on the spot — in cash.
