The man did not win either time on LFL...so why does the article end with the comment about LFL? Both games Mr Lanoce won on allow a lump-sum top prize; it's very possible that, like most lottery players, he would much prefer collecting in lump sum/cash if he were to win big, and perhaps avoids LFL for that reason.
