Anyone in Canada is a millionaire
The Canadian lottery company doesn't want to hear about the word "luck". Myths such as that certain numbers are supposedly drawn particularly often or that one could increase one's chances of winning in some other way, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation shares a decided rejection on its website. The game is about chance, nothing else. Seen in this light, the main character in this story, Melhig Melhig, just happened to become a lottery millionaire twice in a row.
The 28-year-old first won 1.5 million Canadian dollars in April this year - the equivalent of around one million euros - after buying a lottery ticket for 20 dollars in a supermarket. He used the money to buy a house for his family. "We have a beautiful garden, good schools. We love it," he said in a statement on the website of the lottery company where he won.
Later in August Melhig happened again. He went to a shop with his children to buy them toys. At the cash register, he asked that they should give him a lottery ticket instead of the $ 20 change - he promptly won $ 2 million.
When asked what he wanted to do with all that money, Melhig had rather modest wishes. He would like to open a business. "Maybe a gas station or a car wash." He would also like to continue his education, improve his English and learn something useful, for example carpenter.
Melhig's case is not unique. According to the lottery company, in 2007 a woman won a million dollars twice in a row. She had bought the lottery tickets for it in the city of Winnipeg - just like Melhig.
