The top prize in Italy’s massive state lottery draw worth some 210 million dollars has been won for the first time since January. The long delay led to mounting lottery fever with people from around Europe traveling to Italy to buy tickets. Mark Duff now reports.

The numbers are simply mind-boggling. In return for buying a two-euro ticket, someone in a Tuscan village has just scooped a record 146.9 million Euros. Italian lottery winners usually prefer to remain anonymous. But what is known is that the winning ticket was bought at the Bar Biffi in the medieval village of Bagnone. Anticipation had reached fever pitch before Saturday night’s draw. The jackpot winning combination of six numbers hadn’t emerged for 87 consecutive draws and almost seven months.
