Young Man Wins 47 Million ISK in Lottery

By Iceland Review

The lucky winner in the Saturday Lottery has surfaced, reports.

A nervous young man came to the offices of Icelandic Lottery Íslensk getspá, having hardly recovered from realizing that he was the only one with all 5 numbers correct and had therefore won almost 47 tax-free million ISK. Last week, the jackpot was six fold.

After a night on the town Friday night, the young man decided to stop by at an N1 service station in the town of Hafnarfjordur on his way home, to try his luck in the lottery. The man says that he often does so, and it certainly paid off for him this time.

Obviously, the man was happy and he intends to use the money to study, something which he had not allowed himself to do until now.
