    Good news for the victim, le police tracked down the true winner and the euro-lottery paid the man the full whack (20 million quid). The news story doesn't seem to explain why on earth did the man give them his ticket in the first place!!!?? I know they said he had the wrong numbers but wouldn't you get suspicious if the shopkeeper said you hadn't won but asked to 'keep hold of your 'worthless' ticket for you?

    Sorry about the rant, just jealous....
     
  2. The winning numbers are published in locations where tickets are sold as well as all over the press. If any do come up, even for small amounts, then that is published in the relevant vendor's premises. Suppose they "forgot" to stick up the poster....
