The Guinness World Records' record for the largest gathering of lottery millionaires is 110 and was achieved by The National Lottery (UK), in London, UK, on 7 October 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most games of Monopoly Millionaires (EA, 2011) to take place simultaneously; it is 32,976, achieved on Global Monopoly Day, 7 April 2011. The amazing landmark has been reached nearly 21 years after The National Lottery launched with the 4,000 lucky individuals worth a whopping £11.5 billion and an average of six new millionaires created every week.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: "Creating 4,000 millionaires is an amazing achievement but setting two new World Records titles has given us even more reason to celebrate.
"The National Lottery is creating more millionaires than ever before with six new millionaires joining the lucky club every week so we look forward to creating many more records in the years to come."
