“At first I didn’t believe it”
In the worst months of the pandemic, when many citizens were still complying with confinement, a man had the great fortune to become the winner of the EuroMillions lottery draw. In his case, the prize was precisely that of the additional game ‘El Millón’ that is included in each ticket that a player buys.
Alain, fictitious name of this lucky man in an interview in the French newspaper Dauphiné Liberé, assures that it was very difficult for him to believe that he was the real winner of the Euromillions. “At first, I really didn’t believe it. I got to thinking if it could be someone trying to scam me hacking the administration’s website,” he explains. For this reason, it took him a while to contact the FDJ, France’s national lottery, as he wanted to verify if he had really won the jackpot.
Although this happened in 2020, his luck has not stopped growing. The following year, the French citizen was again the winner of the same draw for the second time, taking another million euros. To even more surprise, she found out about this great news the same day he married his wife. Right after the ceremony he went to check his tickets and discovered that he was the winner again.
He paid for their wedding and honeymoon
on the first occasion gathered his whole family and celebrated the success with a bottle of champagne, while in the second the party was already prepared. He immediately went home and told his wife who was preparing for the second part of the ceremony. Since they were traveling to Venice the next day for their honeymoon, Alain he kept the ticket during his entire stay abroad in one of his pockets, since he did not trust leaving it in the hotel, and had to call the administration to present himself as the winner from the same Italian city.
both lhe had paid for a wedding like that honeymoon with his fortune that he got from his previous prize, so this time he decided to invest in other important aspects. He had already bought a house for one of his children with the first million, as well as vacations and dinners at restaurants, so now the money is planned to be used on buy more homes and get into the world of real estate. At the moment, since he is a freelancer, he does not plan to leave his job, but he assures that he feels more relaxed knowing that you do not need a fixed salary every month as before.
The player claims that will continue to play Euromillions every week. “Now I know that we can win, by pure statistics. I consider that today I have neither more nor less chances of winning than before. And even if I don’t earn more, it will still be a profitable operation!” he points out.
