On Friday the 23rd of November an inhabitant of Sainte-Mere- Eglise went into this casino as he does from time to time. After gambling for a while, the player bet the maximum amount of 2.5 euros and the rollers stopped on the winning combination: the jackpot sounded. Sirens and lights indicated that the Partouche Megapot had been won and the director of the Agon Coutainville Casino immediately went to the flashing machine to congratulate the winner.The winner is a retired man who works for a humanitarian group and who wishes to open a school in Senegal. This player had planned to contact local businesses to collect the 10 000 euros in funding that he was missing for this project. With this major win the project can easily be carried out and the businesses in the area won’t need to be appealed to in order to open the school.
