By Using The Wrong Numbers, They Win 13 Million In The Loto

A father and his companion pocketed the jackpot on Friday, December 13, 2019 by mistakenly checking the numbers 6 and 8. Originally, they wanted to bet on the numbers 7 and 9. An inattention which strongly rewarded the couple in winning the jackpot in the process.

An error that pays big

An exceptional sum of 13 million euros was collected by a family from Haute-Vienne during the draw on December 13. The story remains incredible since the lucky winners had a crazy chance after a little thoughtlessness on the choice of numbers. Instead of ticking on their lucky numbers, they choose 6 and 8, thus unearthing the famous winning combination. The amount of the winnings amounts to 13 million euros. By wanting to try their luck at the Loto, the father and his partner decided to put a cross on the day of birth of their grandchildren. But instead of marking on the ballot 7 and 9, they selected the 6 and the 8. At that moment, they realize that they have messed up and can no longer correct the situation. Despite everything, the family validates the grid while still hoping to win. And jackpot! The surprise remains sizeable given the value of the jackpot amounts to more than 10 million euros. According to the information gathered, the father registered his ticket at the Sab’istrot in Saint-Gence, near Limoges. After the drawing was conducted, a lucky winner was identified in Haute-Vienne by obtaining the combination 6-8-19-29-43 and the lucky number 6. The father realizes that it is indeed him by taking care to keep his receipt in a safe.

The lucky ones did not wait to recover their winnings within the Française des Jeux which was delighted to give them the big check. This is not the first time that such a thing has happened in the national lottery. The story unfolded in 1994 when a group of friends pocketed the sum of 18 million francs by opting for the 34 instead of the 44. The same year, a small mistake also brought happiness to a great- mother in her eighties and her grandson in the Gard. Thanks to the action of the retailer of the press house in Aigues-Mortes, they made a fortune by collecting nearly 60 million francs. Enough to spend his retirement peacefully and let his grandson take full advantage of it!

6 Operators With 38 Gambling Sites Suspended By The Spelinspektionen

The regulation of gambling in Sweden is increasingly the subject of strong enforcement measures. The Spelinspektionen proceeded with the outright suspension of 38 gambling platforms belonging to 6 different companies. 2 other operators received warnings after a judgment of the Swedish administrative court. It also confirmed the fines imposed by the regulator.

6 suspended operators

The Swedish gambling regulator, the Spelinspektionen, has taken a strong act which follows its policy of combating illegal gambling. It has been several days since the Swedish regulator announced the toughening of its policy to combat illegal online gambling operators. Indeed, a whole new strategy has been developed for these unscrupulous operators. To this end, the Spelinspektionen has revealed that one of its priorities is the reorganization of the gambling industry sector in the country. The first effects resulting from this orientation were not long in coming.

This is what pushes the regulator to publish the lists of illegal operators. A few days ago, the regulator suspended 6 gambling companies. It’s not just about businesses. The regulator has taken the trouble to list the platforms that these companies own.

2 other operators are under warning

The Spelinspektionen thus banned 38 gambling platforms in Sweden. The list is likely to grow in the coming days. Indeed, the Swedish administrative court sent a warning to two well-known structures: AG Communications Ltd, and Genesis Global. These two players are accused of disregarding the lists of players under voluntary exclusion, while the list is clearly visible on the spelspaus site.

In a judgment rendered by the said administrative court, the judicial authority clearly notes that consultation of the spelspaus site is imperative for gambling operators. She affirms that it is the duty of the regulator Spelinspektionen to sanction the operators who will have put themselves on the fringes of the law.

  • She thus agreed with the Swedish national regulator. The administrative court also affirmed that the regulator had done well to calculate the fine according to the figures of the offending companies. The course of the regulator for the improvement of gambling in the country will therefore apparently not be disturbed by the justice system.
