The Bucks Stop Here – Martinique Woman Wins 1.5 Million Euros


A Martinique woman is laughing all the way to the bank after winning 1.5 million Euros in a scratch game.

It was the maximum win in the game of chance in Fort-de-France this year and the second-biggest payout ever.

On September 16, a family in Haut-Rhin, France, won eighteen million Euros in a Lotto draw.

According to local reports, the Martinique woman who won the 1.5 million Euros bought her winning ticket at a Fort-de-France outlet and kept it under a place mat.

The young retiree and mother expected she would win 15,000 Euros.

However, on learning that she had become a millionairess, she said she did not want to make significant changes in her life.

The woman, who wanted anonymity, said she would like to continue doing what she loves – cooking good meals for her loved ones and continuing to make handicraft.

She also plans to help her family and travel.

But first, the new millionairess plans toΒ  make a cool investment.

She said he would buy a refrigerator to replace the broken-down one she currently has.

  1. This is the envious happening under the 🌞 sun, “Do not gamble”❗
    Be content with what you have,yet poor, but lacks nothing and enjoy a good night sleep ‼️

    Meaningless !!
    Yet when I surveyed all this, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind ; nothing was gained under the 🌞 sun…
    This too is meaningless and a great misfortune 😈,in pain and grief ;even at night the mind does not rest…
    A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work.
    This too,I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enyoyment ❓
    To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and Happiness, but to sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to the one who pleases God…
    This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind ‼️

  2. @Morena rithal go and stay with your poverty under the sun. Is money that running things and money that can give people a better life or start off in life. So the people should have been content with their old fridge? and they should not seek to improve themselves? who knows you one day will get sick and need assistance and its this same woman that send money to your go fund me. At least money did not change her she remained humble if was someone else they would want o buy big chain and car and house and spend lavishly

  3. There is nothing wrong is taking a chance at a game, buying a raffle ticket, investing in stocks it is all the same taking a chance. 401k and 403b is the same thing companies investing expecting a return. As long as you have self control – once in a while taking a chance at a game is certainly not a sin. Amen

  4. What communion does light and 😈 darkness have ❓
    God have put in store everything for his onointed (ones), who God bless no man curseth…
    Yet poor, but lacks nothing ❗
