Man Pockets Lotto Millions

A Russian man won a staggering 63, 847, 775 rubles ($150, 000) Monday in the first Lotto Million draw of 1993, Itar-Tass reported.


The man, about whom the news agency gave no further details, guessed correctly a combination of six out of 49 numbers, the first time anyone has achieved this in nine draws.


Lotto Million, the country's largest lottery, was launched in October. Organizers donate 30 percent of ticket sales to the Russian Olympic Committee.
