Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records have confirmed that the largest ever online gambling payout has been made: €90 million ($103 million).

A German cleaning lady known only as “Christina” won the money playing on the Internet gambling website Lottoland.

“I’m pleased to confirm that Lottoland did indeed manage to set a new Guinness World Records title for the largest online gambling pay-out, which now stands at an incredible €90,000,000,” Guinness World Records official adjudicator Sofia Greenacre told the Daily Mirror on Thursday, clipboard in hand.

The previous holder was a £13.2 million ($17.2 million) jackpot won on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive slot in October 2015 .  Moolah still holds the record for biggest online slot payout ever.

Germany will collect 5 percent of the windfall, or €4.5 million.
