A man who lost his job recently and couldn’t keep up with the mortgage payments on his house in Ciempozuelos, Madrid, has decided to sell lottery tickets at €5 a go to sell it off. Miguel Marina’s 77 m2 house has two bedrooms as well as terrace and a parking space, and there will be no outstanding bills or mortgage because he will pay them off when he collects an estimated €320,000. He has already sold 1,800 of the 64,000 total tickets printed and is offering free advertising on his webpage for a year to anyone who buys 500 tickets. The draw will be made before a notary in Ciempozuelos on Friday, May 15th next year, provided all the tickets have been sold by then. If not, he will be granted extensions of 90 days each until they are. For further details, go to www.elpisodeloscincoeuros.com.
