283 Billion To One Lottery Win

I don't know if these odds are right but Camelot - who run UK lotteries - state that David Long overcame odds of 283 billion to one with his second £1,000,000 lottery win last week.

David won £1,000,000 two years ago. Last week though, he was in a supermarket and saw a poster advertising the latest draw. He said to himself, "Yea, I'll give that a go."

He then went on to say, "I knew I'd win."

Later, checking his numbers he says he called his wife over to confirm realising he had won for a second time. "I said, 'Have a look at this. It's there, look, read that line.'" And sure enough he was a winner again.

A Camelot spokesman said, "As you can imagine, we see winners who win once who are very shocked. It must be even more shocking to win twice." I suppose he means shocked in a good way!

Mr.Long said the second win would not deter him from playing in the future - and insisted a third win was possible. "They say things come in threes, don't they?" he said. "Third time lucky and all that. His wife added, "He will probably win again."

  1. Wow! Interesting what he says - that he knew he would win. I've read that about other lottery winners too.
