I nearly made a million

Posted by dlandgren on 2008-09-30

Last week the Euromillions lotto draw was held as usual, and since it hadn’t had a winner for x weeks, its jackpot was worth 130 000 000€. I don’t get out of bed for anything less than a 100 million, and even then I usually forget about it.

Nonetheless I remembered to fill out a sheet of 5 games for 10€ about an hour before closing on Friday. The next few days were spent in Schrödinger’s limbo where, until I gathered the information of the draw, the ticket was both a winner and a loser.

I finally remembered to look at the results today, and I won! 15 people shared the first rank winnings, and pocketed around 9 184 505€.

I won 9.70€.

As Grandma used to day, “It’s better than a kick up the bum with a pointed shoe”.
