A winner in Novosibirsk scooped more than 4.3 million rubles in the Talon (Prikup) lottery
Pushkin’s famous ‘three, seven, ace’ proved lucky this time
Why not become a millionaire on a Tuesday morning? With an instant lottery, it’s a matter of minutes from buying your ticket to winning your prize. And there it is.
Congratulations to our new record winner, the latest millionaire player of Talon (Prikup). The total jackpot came to 4,327,410 rubles. The ticket was purchased in Novosibirsk using the Stoloto app, and it cost just 60 rubles. That’s the biggest win on Talon (Prikup) since the game was introduced. Congratulations once again!
Lovers of Russian literature will be quick to note that the first cards to appear in the draw were the famous trio that brought luck to the hero of Pushkin’s ‘Queen of Spades’: a three, a seven and an ace. They came out right at the start, albeit in a slightly different order. Did our winner read Pushkin before buying a ticket? Or maybe he spotted a poster advertising the upcoming premiere of Tchaikovsky’s operatic interpretation of the story at the Novosibirsk Opera House and was inspired to buy a ticket? Perhaps he’s a regular player in our games. We’ll only find out for sure when we welcome our lucky winner to Stoloto’s head office to collect the jackpot. In the meantime, we’re looking forward to even more big winners on Talon (Prikup).
