Guinness World Records have confirmed that a 36-year-old cleaner's €90m online win is the largest ever online gambling payout.

Lottoland secured the record title after Berlin woman Christina placed a bet on the Eurojackpot lottery on her mobile phone.

Her win on June 1 resulted in the world record certificate being handed to the Gibraltar based online lottery company on Wednesday.

Christina's mother chose the five numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) that led to the win.

Official adjudicator Sofia Greenacre confirmed that Lottoland set a new Guinness World Records title "for the largest online gambling pay-out, which now stands at an incredible €90,000,000".

Lottoland, which entered the Irish market in March 2017, employs a staff of more than 350 and reports more than eight million customers worldwide.

Established in 2013, the firm has grown to become quite the contender in the online lottery sector globally with strong consumer bases in the UK and Australia in particular.

CEO Nigel Birrell said that the accolade in the hall of fame "is a confirmation of our business model, it proves that we are able to even break world records thanks to our sophisticated insurance model".
