The Bulgarian state has purchased a Hyundai Matrix car to offer it as the big prize in the election lottery, a press release said Friday.

The car is offered online at an average price of GBP 10,000, or approximately EUR 15,000.

Bulgaria decided to hold a lotto for voters in an effort for boosting the turnout on June 25.

The opposition, however, challenged the idea and even President Georgi Parvanov said that the money spent on lottery prizes could have been put to better use.
