The immigrant, identified as Ngame, won the jackpot after he and his wife bought the ticket. They had been travelling by boat to Spain from Africa, when the boat began to sink in the Mediterranean. Ngame was very happy about the win. “There were days when we hardly had 5 Euros on us,” he said. Founded in 1812, the El Gordo lottery drawing is the second oldest lottery event in the world.
