A Bellefontaine tobacco shop made a lucky winner. A player scratched a Cash and won 500,000 euros.
“Around the world” is the name of the tobacco shop at Bellefontaine in Toulouse. It is also a dream that a lucky scratch card player who just hit the jackpot will be able to achieve.
In October, a Toulouse resident bought a cash, a famous scratch game. After spending 5 euros, he won 500,000, the maximum gain to be pocketed with this scratch game.
“It’s incredible. I was not at all aware of it,” says Jean-Michel Loaec, the manager. La Française des Jeux contacted him two days ago to tell him the good news. “This is not the first time that the tobacco shop makes people happy. One person had won 100,000 euros recently. Another person had repotted a million euros”, smiles Jean-Michel Loaec.
He assures us that “the year is not over”. “We can hope for new winners. The end of year celebrations are full of surprises.”
One million euros this summer in the department
Haute-Garonne, a lucky department for games of chance. After a My Million winner in Colomiers on May 14, 2021, it was a family used to playing that won one million euros in a My Million draw in Laroix-Falgarde on July 16, 2021.
If the Euromillions made dozens of winners in the department, the biggest gain recorded goes to a player who had validated his grid at Revel and had pocketed the phenomenal sum of € 101,835,641.00 on December 21, 2012. This handsome Christmas present makes him the fifth biggest Euromillions winner in France.
