A record-breaking €209 million lottery jackpot has been won in Italy.
Yesterday's draw was the first time the SuperEnalotto jackpot was won in more than a year.
In June 2018, a syndicate of players took home a total of €51 million.
However, the past 14 months have seen the subsequent prize pot continue to climb - and it reached €100 million in February.
It rolled over to more than double that by the time the winning ticket was sold at a bar in the city of Lodi in northern Italy ahead of yesterday's draw.
La Repubblica reports that the winning ticket was a €2 quick pick.
The final jackpot overtakes the lottery's previous 2010 record of €177 million.
In a statement, operators SuperEnalotto said the next jackpot winner will also enjoy a substantial prize - with the jackpot for tomorrow's draw currently sitting at €50 million.
They explained: "A small percentage of the prize money is kept in reserve every time there is no winner in a draw to ensure the next jackpot is substantially funded, and the long run of rollovers has helped to build a sizeable pot."
In contrast to the SuperEnalotto jackpot, the EuroMillions game has an upper limit of €190 million - a prize which has been won three times since 2012.
