Jobless man, son win $92m jackpot


A jobless 55-year-old Frenchman and one of his seven children shared a prize of 75.88 million euros ($92.80 million) on Saturday after selecting combinations of the family's ages in the multi-nation Euro Millions lottery.

PARIS, France (Reuters) -- A jobless 55-year-old Frenchman and one of his seven children shared a prize of 75.88 million euros ($92.80 million) on Saturday after selecting combinations of the family's ages in the multi-nation Euro Millions lottery.


The French lottery firm said the winning ticket in Friday's draw was bought in "Cafe de l'Arrivee" -- the Arrival Pub -- at Franconville-la-Garenne in Val d'Oise, not far from Paris.


French television showed one of the winner's sons arriving at the cafe on Saturday to celebrate and talk to reporters. The record jackpot in the lottery was 115.4 million euros won in July in Ireland.


This week's winning numbers were 12, 13, 19, 21 and 38 on the main board, plus 3 and 9 on the "Lucky Star" section.
