A couple in France's upper Vienne province chose the wrong number when buying lottery tickets, but they won the grand prize.
According to the Parisian on December 31, 2019, sometimes human errors can bring unexpected returns. On the 13th, a lucky couple in upper Viena province bought the Lotto lottery in St. Jean near Limoge. After considering many numbers, including the date of birth of their grandson, they finally decided to choose No. 7 and No. 9, but mistakenly checked No. 6 and No. 8 when filling in. After filling in the numbers, they realized that they had chosen the wrong one, but they had no time to change it. Unexpectedly, they won the 13 million euro (about 101 million yuan) award.
Reported that similar adventures have precedents. In 1994, a 50 year old female employee of a school in Rhone Province, France, bought a lottery ticket. She wanted to choose No. 44, but accidentally chose No. 34, but she accidentally won an 18 million franc prize. In the same year, a 14-year-old boy in gale Province, France, helped his grandmother buy lottery tickets. Because the paper tickets were folded in his pocket, they could not be received by the machine, and it was difficult to identify whether he chose No. 32 or No. 33. Finally, the blind number won a huge prize of nearly 60 million francs.
