PALMA
THE hunt for Majorca's record-breaking €126'231'764 lottery winner continued yesterday with banks calling local newspapers in a bid to discover the identity of the region's newest wealthiest woman who is also expecting a baby.

The 25-year-old, who bought her winning ticket online, is understood to still be in Madrid under the protection and guidance of the directors of the lottery web site with which she has been registered since 2006.

Yesterday it was revealed that the winning numbers she chose were those used by her grand father to play the lottery for 30 years.
He never won anything and the Majorcan preferred to play the lottery on line because she claims not to be too sure how the EuroMillions actually works.

In a statement released by Serviapuestas, the web site from which she bought the winning ticket, the winner claims to have never won anything before and when she received the email notifying her of her winnings, she thought it was a hoax.

BREED HORSES
She is however planning on moving to a bigger house on the island, maybe one with some land because she has always wanted to breed horses.
However, she does not plan on getting carried away and intends to use some of the money to help cover the medical costs of treating her godmother who is suffering from a rare disease.

The Majorcan apparently wants to continue with her simple life - hence why she is being kept under wraps for the time being.
For all we know she could be the mystery buyer who on Tuesday bought a flawless vivid blue diamond weighing 7.03 carats for a record 10.5 million Swiss francs (6.2 million pounds) at Sotheby's, the highest price ever paid for any gemstone at auction.

The jackpot win has been headline news across the world over the past few days.
While the millions remained unclaimed some newspapers in the UK claimed the winner was a British tourist who had bought the ticket in Madrid while on holiday in the Spanish capital.

The previous biggest EuroMillions winner was Delores McNamara, from Ireland, who scooped 77 million pounds in 2005.
