Today we bring you the story of a very lucky lottery player from the Belgian city of Antwerp. At the beginning of August, this over-45 year old bought a Win for Life of 1 euros. And he hit it off, because he discovered that he would be paid 500 euros every month for the rest of his life. ‘I knew immediately that I had won, but I didn’t shout my joy in the newsagent’s store’, he told the press.

What do we know about the winner?

We don’t know a lot about the lucky winner. However, he lives in Antwerpen, works as a crane operator and is between 45 and 54 years old. He also has a partner to share the money with.

Simple pleasures of life

Despite this monthly bonus, the winner plans to continue working full time. The 500 euros extra each month will allow him to save. Before his win, he bought a ticket for the National Lottery every month for 10 euros. He prefers the simple pleasures of life such as walking in nature, watching a movie or having a nice dinner with his partner, friends or family.
