â€œ500,000 â‚¬, there is something to dream of! Â»â€¦ The announcement that this Bulgarian van won 100,000 times more than its original stake of â‚¬ 5 by scraping 9 cash in the supermarketâ€œ 8 Ã Huit â€on Rue Henri-Alain-Fournier sparked one in the working-class neighborhood Reaction from Bel-Air. But also in Bulgaria, where the winner came from.
'I had the honor of the press of this country'
Bachir Ehmadaly, the manager of the mini market, can confirm this. â€œThe day before, I had the honor of the press in this country. I received calls on the phone, radio, and two local TV channels. I was asked several questions, especially when I correctly confirmed the information and explained the principle of the game, â€explains Bachir Ehmadaly.
But its been a few years since Mr. Chance has been a regular guest at this business, which over time has established itself as the real lung of the neighborhood.
'At least once a year between 20,000 and 40,000 euros'
â€œThe hope of winning an impressive sum is very much alive. Its not uncommon to earn between $ 20,000 and $ 40,000 at least once a year. The biggest win weve made? The owner of a â€œTac-O-Tacâ€ scratch card that was shown on television and left for life at â‚¬ 1,500 per month, â€recalls Bachir Ehmadaly.
