One lucky couple in Vienna, Austria won a jackpot worth more than 16 million euros in the France Lotto in November. The husband always checks the results in the morning while he’s eating breakfast, so he was surprised to see the winning ticket while he was eating bread. While this prize is not the largest win in the history of France Loto, it is still a large sum. In fact, the biggest jackpot hit was 24 million euros in 2011.
The France Lotto is a rollover lottery, meaning that if you don’t match all 6 numbers, you can still win a prize. Prizes grow by EUR1 million each time you rollover, so if you don’t match all six numbers, you can still win a large amount. If you’ve played in a France Lotto drawing in the past, you may be surprised to learn that the jackpot was not as big as it was last time.
The France Lotto is one of the easiest lotteries to play. You’ll choose five numbers between one and nine, plus one lucky number between one and 10. If you’ve won, your winnings are tax-free, and you get your winnings in one cash lump sum. The jackpot is guaranteed to roll over at least once per draw. If you don’t win the jackpot, you’ll have to wait until the next draw, at which point the jackpot will roll over again.
