€126M Euro Millions lottery ticket was purchased Online
Euro Million's biggest lottery winner didn't know she had won €126 Million (US$170 Million) because she was in bed with the flu.
The lucky woman was the only jackpot winner of May 8th Euro Millions drawing.
She failed to realize her numbers had come up until she dragged herself to work on Monday to save herself from being fired.
The unnamed 25-year-old, from Majorca, said, "I still had the flu on Monday but with the crisis we are going through, I decided I had to go to work anyway out of fear of losing my job."
She had bought her ticket from an Internet Vendor, who repeatedly tried to contact her by email and phone over the weekend. But she ignored them all because she was sick, before finally answering their call at work.
She will now pick up the biggest Euro Millions jackpot check ever awarded to a single person — for €126 Million.
