More than six major prizewinners each week
- The Prizewinner Relations Department provides support to players winning €500,000 or more and organises the awarding of prizes in their region.
- Players winning €1,000,000 or more receive individual personalised support from the Prizewinner Relations Department upon winning, followed by group support the next five years.
Comprehensive long-term support
The purpose of this support programme is to help prizewinners live the life they always dreamed of after winning. This is why, as a responsible gaming operator, FDJ has undertaken to support its major prizewinners over the long term. To that end, it offers a variety of workshops:
- Money - keys to sound management
Led by a professor of tax law, the aim of this workshop is to familiarise prizewinners with banking institutions and tax regulations, and to help them manage their money. A coach specialising in change management also helps new prizewinners adjust to their winnings and become more comfortable working with new service providers, especially in the financial industry.
- Life as a prizewinner - finding the right words
Each prizewinner has a different emotional reaction to winning, which raises a lot of new questions. This workshop, led by experts in human sciences, teaches prizewinners to express how they feel about the changes in their lives since winning, and to better understand their own feelings and the feelings of their friends and family.
- Building a community with other prizewinners
Enjoyment of social interaction, sharing experiences in a hassle-free setting: major prizewinners appreciate the chance to talk about their new lives. These opportunities for sharing create close ties in the prizewinner community.
- Giving meaning to your life as a prizewinner
These workshops introduce prizewinners to new experiences, encouraging them to broaden their horizons and begin defining their new plans. They help boost their self-confidence and uncover all the potential outlets for their winnings depending on their personality.
