1 january 2020 state lottery distributor “The chair” announced the emergence of Russia's first lottery billionaire. At that time, the name of the winner was unknown., however, in the end he got in touch. 9 January media reported, that this is a resident of the Moscow region Nadezhda Bartosh.
Winner of a lucky ticket from the New Year's circulation “Russian lotto” came to the registration of the prize with her husband and daughter. As the woman said, the family bought it a few minutes before the closing of the point of sale in a shopping center in the village of Yudino, Odintsovo district.
“I have 31 December birthday. And I bought tickets several times, and here children ask me: “Mom, What to gift?” I say: “Well, buy me a lotto ticket”. Took three: from the beginning of the pack, from the middle and from the end. And then I forgot about them, put them in the car. And all”, Bartosz recalls.
Probably, the third or fourth daughter arrived and found tickets in the car, checked, calls and speaks at night: “Mom, I do not understand, notes, to my mind, won”. And I answer: “I'll only believe then, when will they really tell me, that it is true”.
However, the family's success story soon became the cause of a scandal.: some media and telegram channels accused the organizers of the lottery of rigging. Reported, eg, and that Bartosz is not an ordinary pensioner, and the founder of the trading house, who is in the caviar business.

He wrote about this on his Instagram.
The lottery organizers themselves denied all charges and announced the preparation of a lawsuit to protect business reputation.. In company “The chair” also highlighted, that the lottery was held “in strict accordance with the law” and there could be no collusion with the winner Nadezhda Bartosh before the drawing.

The wife and parents were crying: "We don't need that kind of money"
Entrepreneur Albert Begarkyan from Kolpino won the lottery in 2011 100 million rubles, by matching six numbers from 45. From a rented apartment, together with his wife and daughters, he moved to a luxurious house in the center of St. Petersburg, bought several apartments and started a new business - building a hotel in Taman. But still there was not enough money - not paying on time tax on winnings, a millionaire became a defendant in a criminal case.
The Begarkyan family moved to Russia in 2001 year. Lived hard. Albert told on the First Channel, that he worked without weekends and holidays. Accommodation rented, even there was no furniture. Children slept with jacks on the bed, and parents - on the floor. Then everything worked out: the entrepreneur has several pavilions, car service. He took up construction.
- AT 2011 year everything was reset. The pavilions had to be closed, construction site stopped. I didn't want to start all over again. I thought, that I will tax for now ... In Russia then for the first time they played 100 million rubles. From the first draw, I started buying one or two tickets - I hoped, what will I win, - recalled Albert Begarkyan in the program "Alone with everyone".
Albert missed the TV show with the winnings. Checked the ticket on the Internet. Surprise and joy were followed by tension - the ticket of the nameless, children at home. The whole country knows, that the win is in Kolpino. The millionaire was offered protection, but he himself took the ticket to the safe deposit box, and then to Moscow. His wife sewed him to the shirt from the inside, rode a hare, so that no one can track his movements.
- A woman, parents, sister cried - do not take the prize. We don't need that kind of money. They were afraid, - Albert said.
The first winner of the TV program was filmed in Moscow. Albert's phone was broken on the way home. People asked for money. He did not refuse to help many, because at one time he needed it himself.

- Many business plans offered. But I had a question not to earn, not to lose this money. Bought for everyone, what was needed: father - a car, my sister later renovated the apartment ... I bought housing, acquired a plot of land in Taman, started building a hotel ... I had to quickly get rid of the money. They oppressed.
Lottery winnings under Russian law are taxed in 13%. To 1 january 2018 year it had to be paid by the winner himself (now the state lotteries take it upon themselves). Albert Begarkyan immediately postponed 13 million, intended for the state - they were kept in the bank.
- I was told, that you can earn interest, and then pay tax. I spent the rest of the money - the site, hotel. At some point I lent a lot of money, more 12 million. And it was necessary either to stop the construction, or take from tax. The guys promised me, that in a month they will give everything, so I have withdrawn money from the account, - said Albert. - And then I heard on TV, that a criminal case was opened ... I paid a lot of interest, sold another apartment and paid.
To the question, is Albert Begarkyan waiting for a new win, he answers: “I don’t want big money. Further myself ". He calls his winnings a test.
- Winning the lottery is a great success. Big plus in life. But I think, that a person can break loose in such moments, become an alcoholic or drug addict - when he has everything or nothing. I got everything. It was hard to resist, - Albert says.
