A luxury villa, expensive cars and 75.000 euro: these are the kind of Postcode Lottery prizes gamblers from Brabant have won lately. For example, a couple of days ago 73-year old Ari from Sprang-Capelle won 50.000 euros and a brand-new BMW. He’s not the only gambler from Brabant who has won a big prize this year.
A nice surprise from Gaston
Gaston Starreveld loves to take a surprise visit to a lottery winner. Recently, he went to the Schrevelstraat, where the residents won a total of 587,500 euros. The highest price was 75,000 euros. One of the winners was Ari, who got a cheque of 50.000 euros and a new BMW! Ari couldn’t believe his eyes. Normally he makes a lot of jokes, but he was quiet for a moment. ‘Unbelievable!’ he commented.
Patience has been rewarded
70-year-old Marianne from Eindhoven has been playing with the Postcode Lottery for thirty years. Her patience has been rewarded: last month presenter Gaston paid her a visit and told her that she’d won 10.000 euros! In total there were eight so-called street prize winners.
Bossche Bulbs to celebrate
In May, some Brabanders got a lot of money on their bank account. This time the street price fell in Liempde, where ten residents together won 362.500 euros in total. Among the lucky winners were Ad and Ine. The couple won 50. 000 euros in total. They bought Bossche Bulbs, a true regional specialty, to hand out at their work in Bossche. The couple is also planning to make a great trip with their children and grandchildren.
Great prizes in Moerdijk
Past June Moerdijk was turned upside down when it turned out that residents of the Wethouder Mattheestraat had won big prizes in the Postcode Lottery. A 61-year old player was the luckiest of them all: he won a big villa. Five others also won prizes, one of them took home 50.000 euros and the other four won 25.000 euros each.
After rain comes sunshine in Oudenbosch
Happiness and misfortune are closely intertwined. After two cars were crushed by a falling tree in Oudenbosch at night, the next evening Winston Gerschtanowitz stood in the exact same street with a number of big cheques on the doorstep. The lucky winner was Cornelis, who won 214,000 euros. Seventeen neighbors also won 214,000 euros, although they have to share the prize.
Party in Hoeven
Last February, a big party took place on the Sint Bernardusstraat in Hoeven. Eleven residents of the town received 100.000 euros together. Nicolette van Dam suddenly stood in front of them and handed out the prize.
Who is the new millionaire?
In Sint-Michielsgestel in the province of Brabant the lottery fever increased as well, when in January it turned out that someone had won one million at the Dutch State Lottery. A new millionaire, in other words. Almost no one knew who it was, which made it even more exciting!
