A man from Groningen was unaware that he had been a millionaire for almost half a year now. This week he discovered that he had won the State lottery jackpot of 2.02 million euro in December 2012. reported that early in April the State lottery started a search for the winner with the help of Groningen media. After reading a message in a paper, the man decided to look for his ticket and found out he got lucky.

A winning ticket remains valid for a year. Last year the State lottery searched for the owner of a ticket worth 100 thousand euro. However, they did not find the winner in time so the money went into the state treasury.
