Groningen, Maastricht take lottery prizes

The €25m tax-free jackpot in this year’s December 31 national lottery has gone to a household in Groningen. The main prize – also €25m – goes to Maastricht.

But only half of the record sum will be paid out because the owners only bought half a ticket. In total, the lottery is paying out €100m in New Year prizes.
This year’s final postcode lottery has been won by a district in The Hague.
