In February 2007, the national lottery handed over a cheque worth 100 million euros to a shopkeeper in Tienen (Flemish Brabant) who received the money on behalf of a person who did not want to have his/her identity revealed.
In December 2008, two Belgians each won a sum of 7.5 million euros. They were the only players in Europe to have five correct figures and two stars.
In August 2009, a Belgian became 37 million euros richer. The last Belgian win was last May (15 million euros).
