The French National Lottery became widely popular after the media coverage of barber Paul Bonhoure's win of five million francs in the first draw. Beginning in 1952 the Loterie Nationale faced a tough competition from the PMU (horse races). The last drawing of the Loterie Nationale took place in December 1990, when it is was replaced by the more and more popular Loto.

"Little Red Riding Hood" the famous European fairy tale origins can be traced back to the 10th century to several European folk tales, including one from Italy called The False Grandmother (Italian: La finta nonna), later written among others by Italo Calvino in the Italian Folktales collection; the best known versions were written by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. The story has been changed considerably in various retellings and subjected to numerous modern adaptations and readings. Changed once again, in our artist, GAD's image, Little Red Riding Hood (Le Petit Chaperon Rouge) is holding a Lottery ticket, which has caught the attention of the wolf.
