These particularly unique Swedish innovations have made the country world renowned. However, one thing many people didn’t know about Sweden is the fact it has the highest number of winning tickets on the Euro Jackpot lottery!

According to the Swedish media, in 2012, three winners, all anonymous, a 28 year old woman and two men in their forties, where the lucky winners of a € 13,3 million jackpot. Another woman, Amelia Andersdottir, 33, was the lucky winner of a € 15 million jackpot in late 2012. This goes to show that the Swedish seem to be extra lucky when it comes to the EuroJackpot lottery.

According to Play Sweden, the country’s lottery operator, lucky Swedes have accounted for nearly 33.2% of all winning tickets, over € 100,000 Euros. According to the Gothenburg Times, the country has created 12 millionaires since 2011. So that accounts for one millionaire every two months. That is a seriously good result!
