A lucky lotto player from Stuttgart has become the third-biggest winner in German history by snaring a €24.8-million jackpot on Saturday.

The state-run Lotto company in Baden-Württemberg announced Monday that the winner, whose identity has not been revealed, was the only contestant to choose all six numbers correctly as well as getting the extra “super number.”

The winning numbers were 1, 16, 25, 29, 33 and 47, while the super number was 5. The winner has 13 weeks to lodge their claim for the prize money.

Two lotto players, one from Baden-Württemberg and the other from the Rhineland-Palatinate, won €1.44 million each for picking the correct six, though without the super number.
