Getting the wrong numbers pays off

Getting the wrong numbers pays off - A French couple in south western France has “by mistake” managed to choose the winning numbers for France’s super lotto. When filling out the grid on December 13th the couple who regularly play the same numbers got the wrong ones and instead of ticking 7 and 9 they crossed out 6 and 8 taking home a cool 13 million euros.

In the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region, the biggest win for the French lottery dates back to November 2012 when 169 million euros was won at La Trinité in Nice.
