How to end the year 2022 financially. In the Hautes-Alpes, a man in his sixties won 4.5 million euros by playing Euromillions. “A player decides to go buy a kebab. And, while waiting for his sandwich to be made, he remembers that he has a gambling receipt in his wallet”, says Isabelle Cesari, head of relations with the big winners of the Française de Jeux, at the microphone of Europe 1.

“So he says to himself: ‘Here, I’m going to go right next to the tobacconist to check this receipt’. And he learns that he has won 4.5 million euros,” she continues.

A fun way to announce it to your wife

The manager explains that this lucky guy “told his wife this win in a rather amusing way. In fact, he only ate a few bites of his kebab, so he took it home. He put it then in the fridge and his wife came home, saw the kebab in the fridge, which is not necessarily a dish he is used to eating”, specifies Isabelle Cesari.

The end of the story ? “His wife said to him, ‘What is this sandwich?'” He replied, “Listen, you won’t believe me, but it’s a golden kebab “And there, they were both quite flabbergasted, but with a lot of hindsight on the situation and a lot of joy too, of course”, remarks the head of relations with the big winners of the FDJ. With his winnings, the player wants to help his loved ones, buy a house or even travel to South America.
