Costing just two euros, the single winning ticket matched all the numbers on Tuesday nights draw, 7, 32, 41, 59, 75 and 76.
The identity of the new multi-millionaire has not revealed, but the manager of the store that sold the valuable ticket was only too happy to speak to Italian media.
'How can we know who bought it...
'There was a constant flow today; people were coming in and asking for a ticket at random.
'And I printed it (the winning ticket), I printed it.'
The winner has 90 days from the date of the draw to collect the fortune from one of the Sisal offices in Milan or Rome. Once the result is validated, the money will be paid by bank transfer.
