Shop 'n' Win

The Géant Hypermarket at Binned Potato Maul is holding a weird little promotion. They have this guy with a microphone who picks a random number every ten minutes, and if you are at the corresponding checkout, your shopping is free! Yay. So I was just buying a few things when it all happened. A checkout was selected. A shopper was made happy. The single pot of yoghurt he was planning to buy was given to him for free! He saved One Dirham!

Mr Microphone announced they'd be doing it again in ten minutes' time, so I discreetly set up an alarm on my phone and became very interested in the stuff on the shelves near the checkouts. But they cheated - the next number was drawn only eight minutes later, and it was an empty checkout!

Oh and by the way, how hard is it to pronounce 'Géant' correctly? Even Mr Microphone couldn't do it.
