China's national lottery "Bicolor Balls" No. 2010092, held on Aug. 10 had 55 first-prize-winning tickets, of which 50 were bought by the same person in Shanghai.

The biggest lottery winner spent only 200 yuan buying 250 tickets with 5 different groups of numbers, and it turned out that 50 were first-prize-winning tickets, each worth more than 5 million yuan, and 50 are second prize-winning tickets, each worth 120,000 yuan, indicating that the winner won 259 million yuan in total.

According to China's official lottery Web site, the 55 first prize-winning tickets were sold in Shanghai as well as in Liaoning, Heilongjiang, Jiangsu, Guizhou and Yunnan provinces respectively. In addition, the lottery store that sold the 50 first-prize-winning tickets is located on Dalian Street, Yangpu District, Shanghai.

The first prize-winning numbers were 03, 13, 19, 27, 28, 30, and 02. The first six numbers were printed on red balls, and the last number was on a blue ball.

As almost the entire lottery funds were gone, the China Welfare Lottery Management Center immediately allocated 30 million yuan to make up for the next jackpot prize.

The 259 million yuan this time replaced the 113.8 million yuan won by a buyer in Gansu province in 2007 as the second largest lottery prize in China, while the largest prize remains the 350 million yuan jackpot won by a buyer in Henan province in 2009.
