It's not often that a lottery player gets the joy of taking home a jackpot prize - TWICE! But that is exactly what has happened to one lucky France Loto player from the Southern city of Montpellier.
In fact, calling the French winner 'lucky' may be somewhat of an understatement given that he won both times by playing the SAME line of numbers!
His first France Loto win was in 1996 when he took home the top prize of €2.8 million. Many lottery players might have called it a day after taking home the jackpot, but not the anonymous France Loto winner. He carried on playing the same set of numbers that he has been playing since the lottery was introduced in 1976. These are numbers that he chose completely at random.
The faith he had in his number set was rewarded when he took home an unbelievable second France Loto win last Wednesday - a jackpot win of €3 million!
It may come as no surprise that the France Loto winner (who claims that he was born under a 'lucky star') is continuing to play the France Loto and is in fact planning on winning it for a THIRD time?
For all those wondering, the chances of one player winning twice with the same six numbers are 1 in 363 billion.
Lucky man indeed!
Try you luck on the France Loto drawn every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
