This happy Haut-Alpine couple is now one of the lucky winners of the lottery but they are far from being the only ones, back to the greatest winners in the history of the Southern Alps?
They will have a very lucky Christmas! A high-alpine couple won 5,686,612.30 euros at Euromillions, in the draw on December 8th. The gain was validated in the press point of the commercial gallery of Leclerc Gap. At first flabbergasted, the couple couldn’t believe it. On condition of anonymity, the winners said they were thinking of their families, but also of those who did not. They will thus get closer to two charities, which take care of orphans.
This is the third biggest win in the history of the Hautes-Alpes. The most important was 9,652,340 euros on November 17, 2006 at Euromillions, the second amounted to 6 million in the Loto on July 27, 2002, and finally the last to date, which closes the podium. These three biggest wins were all won in Gap, including the fourth, of 4.5 million euros, on May 2, 2018.
