Chap who won 9 million euros in Almería legs it out of town

There is some indignation in the local press that the first thing “El Majo”, owner of a small bar in one of the poorest parts of Almería town, chose to do when he won 9 million on the ONCE lottery last week, was high tail it out of town.

It seems that El Majo checked his lottery ticket number on Saturday, let out a whoop of joy, confirmed his winnings with the ONCE people, packed his bags and shut his bar.

“A lovely bloke, we’ll miss him” says Mustapha Chuqiq, who owns a locuturio next door. “I think he was from Asturias originally”.
