The first banknotes were sold for 100 F and, from 1934 onwards, they were sold in the same way as the others,

to the 1/5th and 1/10th of the whole bill (for a value of 50 F and 10 F)

that have the same number.

and to many associations that are starting to work as transmitters,

like the veterans' associations and the Gueules cassées from 1935.

 

The Lottery is renewed each year by successive Finance Acts.

The decree-law of  which stigmatized the

"serious moral hazard of the games"

After the war, the circulation became weekly.

Special slices appear at Valentine's Day, Mother's Day

and Friday the 13th.
