Extraordinary €169 million win in the Alpes-Maritimes!

Almost 170 million euros were up for grabs in last week’s Euro Millions draw and it turns out that the winning ticket was bought in our very own region – Alpes Maritimes. Whoever picked those special numbers has won the largest jackpot to be awarded in France and now certainly has enough to buy a luxury property in Nice, Cannes or Monaco!!

The lucky winner beat odds of 116,531,800 to one and, according to local newspaper Nice Matin, will now be the 221st richest person in France. This incredible jackpot beats the record for winnings in France, previously held by a player from Normandy who won €162m on the Euro Millions in September 2011. The winner has 60 days to claim the prize. We suggest he spends some of it on a luxury villa in Nice!!
