Sometimes persistence pays off. A player from Pas-de-Calais won the sum of 160,788,895 euros in the Euromillions draw on Friday November 4. This sixty-year-old had tried his luck every week since the creation of the European lottery in 2004.
He also benefited from a good dose of luck because, when the jackpot exceeds the symbolic bar of 100 million euros, he adds one or two flash grids. And it is precisely a flash combination (2, 11, 37, 45, 47, stars 2 and 3) that allowed him to win the jackpot.
“I don’t do things by halves,” he joked upon receiving the check. “I had never won anything; anyway, I just like it to be a big sum all at once”.
“You are a dog of millionaires now”
The day after the draw, it was on television, on the banner of a news channel, that he learned that a player had won the jackpot. After checking on his app, he yells at his wife, “I won! “. The precious ticket will never leave them: they keep it at home, and when they are away, they slip it into the door of their car “in case the house burns down”.
The couple very quickly announced the great news to their children, but also to their dog: “You have to behave properly; you are a dog of millionaires now”. In addition to helping financially and pleasing his loved ones, he wants to buy a main residence but also “a second home by the sea and a chalet in the mountains”. Family trips are also planned. “To choose the destination, we will spin a globe like in the Loto advertisement of the 2000s”.
The new multi-millionaire continues to play, as usual. “I also won 3.70 euros in the next draw; I was very happy “.
