The winner quit his job
That day, the lucky winner went to the establishment to buy an X20 ticket from the Illiko range, around 6:30 a.m. One thing is certain: the latter did well since he won the maximum gain by paying only five euros.
« This is a loyal customer. He comes every week “, entrusted the boss of the bar to the regional daily. Unsurprisingly, the 40-year-old man rushed to get his money back from the Lotery .

You may not know it, but only three tickets out of 12 million allow you to win the maximum gain, explains the news site. The trader was probably born under a lucky star. Still according to information from Progress, the man would have chosen to leave his job.
This is not the first time that a Frenchman has won such a sum this year thanks to a scratch game. Last July, a resident of the Pays de Châteaubriant who bought a cash won the €500,000 jackpot.
