Some people have all the luck

This lady lives in Las Vegas and plays the Texas Lottery - quite successfully.

Quote:
The luckiest person in the world? Look no farther than Joan Ginther, at least when it comes to winning the lottery.

Since 1993, the 63-year-old woman has won four windfalls on the Texas Lottery, each time winning more than $1 million for a total of $20.4 million.
Texan may be world's luckiest lottery winner

PS. Watch the babe with the saxophone. Doesn't she have some resemblance to Jennifer Aniston?

That something about her luck. If I'd were superstitious (which I'm not 100% not), I'd be a little worried that things might balance out after having all that luck.

Nah, I came up snake-eyes on the birth lottery, but my luck improved considerably when I was adopted on day three.
