From October onwards you’ll see ’Rifles’ advertised everywhere you go in the P-O!


No need to duck unless you’re talking “two little ones”! It’s bingo!

Originating from provencal slang, the word is used mainly in south west France.Several other words are used other regions: Quine in the Cantal, the Aveyron, Charente-Maritime, the Lot, and the Lozère, Rifle in the Cher, the Loir-et-Cher, the Pyrénées-Orientales, Béziers, and the Nièvre, Loto-Quine in Picardie, Nord-Pas-de-Calais and la Réunion and Poule au gibier in Corrèze!

In fact, all non profit making associations are allowed to organise 2 rifles a year in order to raise funds for their activities, so it’s all for a good cause.
