29.08.2015 - The card was bought from a lottery office in Las Palmas city centre and has earned the holder a one-off payment of €100,000 plus a monthly wage of €3,000 for the next 20 years.

No details of the identity of the winner have been revealed. On the same day a person from Fuerteventura won €5,000 and a mini-wage of €500 per month for five years on another ONCE scratch card.  A few days earlier the standard ONCE lottery draw saw €140,000 in prize money go to four customers of a Las Palmas ticket shop.
