One person in Israel will be able to retire with a big smile after winning the first prize in the Pais lottery Tuesday night. The Lotto prize was a whopping NIS 40 million. No one took the Double Lotto prize, which stood at NIS 80 million - the highest first prize ever to be offered in Israel. Another person won the second prize, NIS 1 million. The first prize in the next Lotto will therefore be NIS 5 million.
