A participant of a lottery held on Saturday evening for NIS 16 million has won the entire prize, breaking national lottery history, it was revealed on Sunday. The winner had filled out a "Double Lottery" ticket - a new option which doubles the price of the ticket but also the pay of the potential prize. The winner, who has yet to claim the prize, was thus awarded NIS 32 million, the highest win by a single person in the game's history in Israel, the previous record being NIS 25 million. "I can hardly wait to meet the person who has claimed the prize," said Ovad Hazan, head of the winnings department in Mifal Hapais, which runs the lottery.
