French lottery player collects his second $1.8 million jackpot

June 6 (UPI) — A French man has collected a $1.2 million lottery jackpot from the same game he won the same amount from 18 months earlier.

The Haute-Savoie man scored a $1.2 million jackpot from a Euromillions My Million drawing in late May, 18 months after he collected the same prize from the same game.

My Million is a supplementary game offered complimentary to Euromillions players in France. Players earn a My Million entry for each line of numbers they purchase for a Euromillions ticket.

The numbers for My Million drawings are always randomly generated; they can’t be chosen by players.

The man said he plans to continue playing the lottery and hopes to score a third big win.
