Kerala’s ₹25 Crore Lottery Winner Revealed! You Won’t Believe the Lucky Ticket Number!

The Kerala State Lottery Department recently announced the winning ticket number for the substantial ₹25 crore first prize in the Onam Thiruvonam Bumper BR-93 lottery. The fortunate ticket bears the number TE 230662 and originates from Kozhikode. This exciting result was revealed following a draw conducted at Gorky Bhavan, located near Bakery Junction in the state capital, Thiruvananthapuram. The draw was carried out transparently under the vigilant supervision of independent judges. Kerala State Lotteries, which were inaugurated in 1967, are overseen by the Government of Kerala.

According to a report by Manorama Online, the winning ticket was purchased in Walayar, Palakkad, bringing joy to the local community.

The ₹25 crore prize is a historic moment in Kerala’s lottery history, setting a record for the largest prize ever awarded. However, it’s important to note that the winner will receive approximately ₹17.5 crore after a 30 percent deduction for income tax.

Furthermore, this lottery offers substantial prizes in addition to the first prize. The second prize amounts to ₹1 crore and will be awarded to 20 fortunate individuals, while another 20 participants will receive the third prize of ₹50 lakh each. The fourth prize, ₹5 lakh, will be granted to 10 individuals.

Comparing this year’s prize structure to the previous year, it’s evident that this year presents even more attractive opportunities for winners. In the previous year, there was only one second prize of ₹5 crore, with ₹50 lakh each awarded to 20 third-prize winners and ₹5 lakh each distributed among 10 fourth-prize recipients.

The substantial increase in ticket sales this year can be attributed to the revised prize distribution system. By the final day for ticket purchases, an astonishing 70 lakh tickets had been sold, underscoring the tremendous popularity of the Thiruvonam Bumper lottery.

In the previous year, a total of 397,911 fortunate individuals received various Onam bumper prizes. This year’s enhanced prize structure promises even more excitement and opportunities for lottery enthusiasts to experience good fortune.
