One lucky French lottery player scooped a EuroMillions jackpot worth over 72 million euros on Friday, organisers La Francaise des Jeux (FDJ) said.
The 72,149,579 euro ($97.3 million) win is the second massive jackpot payout in France in January from the European super lottery.
The lucky winner has 60 days to claim the booty in order to begin their new life as a multimillionaire.
The EuroMillions lottery, launched in 2004, is now played by nine countries across western Europe: Austria, Belgium, Britain, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
