One winner in Israel's largest-ever lottery drawing

InternationalInternational: One winner in Israel's largest-ever lottery drawing

7 million tickets were purchased for the largest cash prize in Israel's lottery history but only one person won, taking the first prize of NIS 74 million (US$19.5 million).

The jackpot was the result of 22 consecutive weeks without a winner.

After taxes are cleared, the winner will go home with a cool NIS 55.5 million, getting into 2010 with a wide grin on his or her face.  As of Monday morning, the prize winner had not come forward to collect the prize check.

The previous high winner was in 2002, when the winner collected NIS 50 million [before taxes].

The runner up did well, earning NIS 4 million before taxes. S/he has yet to come forward either.

The winning ticket was 6,8,14,21,23,24 with the "strong" number of 7.

Lottery officials added that since the new lottery began in February 2009, 49 people have become millionaires, almost one a week.  This marks a significant increase to the 30 millionaires in 2008, under the old system.

    israel lottery 6/37 is the one of the worst lottery ever.

    you need 4 3/6 prize to cover one full ticket (14 line-the most common ticket that sell here)-you can buy lest line.

    to enter the game you need to buy at least 2 set of  line that will cost you 5.8 ins the 3/6 prize is only 10 ins.

    14 line will cost 40 ins, 4/6 prize is 45 ins.

    5/6=500 ins

    of course all thing will change if you get the power num (strong number)but the odd is 1:8

    3/6+ strong num =20 ins 

    4/6+strong num =85+- ins

    ins=israel new shakel 4ins=1+-$

    i use lottery wheel system, i get 2 or 3 3/6 prize and usually lost money,the game is designed only to be 

    profit to the lucky one that have 5/6 prize.

    mifal hapais said the expectation of game is about 40%, but the expectation is calculated by enter prize of 2.9 ins for line,but you need 2 line to enter the lot=5.8, so the exp' id 20-30% ?? .

      It's a good investment too, for the only democracy and true friend we have in the middle east.

      Now if they would just hurry up and knock out those Iranian nuke sites...

      Time to nip it in the bud.

      God bless Israel.

        Amen, just because we give them billions in aide doesn't mean that the people their are out right loaded. there are a lot of poor people. we may be the wealthiest country in the world but the same could be said about us.  people say the same about our lottery's. who cares, we give money to several countries. i hope that the winner of that was flat broke and it was his/her last option. which is always a wonderful and powerful story of the grace of God or in some people's opinion luck hitting them at the exact moment in which it needs too...

        And God Bless Israel!!!
