French Woman Hits The Jackpot from €1.50 Bet
A woman in France is celebrating after a €1.50 bet on a slot machine won her a huge €34,000 jackpot at the Megève ski resort.
It was the first time that the machine’s jackpot had been won in three years and the woman, a weekend visitor to the resort, watched in disbelief as the machine continued to award her coins.
The other players at surrounding machines cheered as the payout continued until it reached €33,950. She then celebrated by buying all 200 people in the club a glass of champagne.
Not as luck was the winner at a casino in Enghien-les-Bains, north-west of Paris, who had his €30,000 winning stolen when he returned home to Drancy in Seine-Saint-Denis. He told police that a gang of about five men had attacked him and sprayed him with teargas and stolen his bag with the money.
