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

Rifle

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.
