After winning the jackpot on 20 march, the man, who wishes to remain anonymous, had to wait nearly two months before being able to touch the amount as expected, tells Le Parisien . During all this time, he has preserved his precious ticket in the hull of his mobile phone. "It was in excellent condition, folded in two. Our winner was very careful. He had packed in a small white paper to protect it, " says Isabelle Cesari, head of relationships winners on a daily basis.

The time limit to do so know lying

The lucky one who has validated his / her grid in a point of sale of the Viscount-sur-Rance, a village of the Côtes-d'armor, has so arranged for the grain to not to lose his ticket, which is necessary to recover the sum. Once allowed to get out of the house, the multimillionaire has been able to go to a center of regional payment to receive his due at the hands of a member of the service "relationship winners" of the JDF, " says The Parisian, which specifies that the winner has already bought a "nice car" and plans to stop for a time to work.

last march, the FDJ had decided to extend the time given to winners of lotteries and sports betting to get their gain. "So, you'll be able to pay your winnings at the end of the confinement period", she had stated on its website, the goal being to "avoid that the winners have to move in to their point-of-sale or in a payment center". Instead of the usual period of 60 days, the lucky ones who won the bet between 17 January and 16 march, will now have 120 days to make themselves known.

Why go to a tobacconist or other to play the lottery .
You can open an account on the internet in 2 minutes and when you have winnings you are paid into your bank account .
no need to leave .

The problem with the big winners (more the lottery the euromillion that gains more important) is that they make a pleasure in accumulating sometimes great cars and real estate when it's not boats, all without thinking about the maintenance/insurance and the taxes that come from behind, some soon find themselves with nothing.
They were often "poor" and as they do not understand the value of money, they drift away quickly.
