A gambler has won £2.2million on a slot machine in a French casino.
The frenchman in his thirties, who has not been identified, made a dream start to 2022 bagging the sum after playing a two-euro coin.
The man from Aisne, described as an ‘occasional player’ by the operator of the Saint-Amand-les-Eaux casino in northern France, hit the jackpot while playing on Sunday night.
A so-called Megapot of prize money is available on 175 slot machines linked up in 38 French casinos run by the Partouche group, with 31 people winning more than a million euros each in the last 10 years.
