7 People So Lucky They Should Bet On The Lottery

Life is filled with incredible coincidences and miracles. Sure, winning the lottery takes a bit of luck. But these people are something else and should have enough luck to spare for for picking up a jackpot or two at the lottery. By the way, you must hover your cursor over the pictures to see them move! Magic!  

7 People So Lucky They Should Bet On The Lottery

Bird meets fist

This guy is catching a bird like nobody's business. What are the odds of even doing this? Surely a man this lucky would fare quite well in the lottery. I like the raised fist of win at the end. Catch and walk away. Catch and walk away. This guy is the embodiment of effortless cool. 


A brush with the grim beemer

This is quite literally a brush with the grim reaper, or in this case what looks like a five-door car. The only way this could have been more of a close call would have been if this guy was doing this whilst texting his pal riding behind him.


Have a go at the l-otter-y 

I never knew otters could be trained to get the better out of vending machines. If I had one of these at work I wouldn't have to worry about change for my daily dose of prawn cocktail crisps. You can't deny there is some luck involved in this though. This otter sure came up big and you can see how lucky he feels when he triumphantly turns to the camera. 


Do-nut try this at home 

This is completely donuts. If you've ever done this kind of thing you know it's inevitable to end up in the water. But one of these blokes wouldn't have any of it. He pulled off some kind of mid-air tumble, only to end up in his friends donut. Talk about lucky. Crashing into water at high speeds hurts.


Vending machines that keep on giving 

Like lotteries, vending machines have the ability to surprise you with a something extra. Unlike vending machines, you can't win on the lotto by tackling, kicking or sending otters up inside of them. 



Against all odds

We can't all be Matthew McCona-what's-his-name. But there are ways to increase your allure to the opposite sex without being a hunky superstar. My guess is that wearing a baseball glove, a EP called 24 Happning Hits and a rather colourful yet colourless outfit is not one of them. 



You're one in 13,983,815 

Men who are willing to sit through a hair class doesn't come 1 in a million. They come at least 1 in 13,983,815 which coincidentally are the odds of winning the jackpot in the upcoming draw of UK Lotto. 



Why are you still here? Go and make your own luck! 

That's all for this week. Tweet us at @LottolandUK if you have more examples of some lucky people. Also, don't forget to check out our funniest lottery tweets from last month – the new ones will be up next week. 


One of the parts of my job which I enjoy the most is getting the chance to explore the nuances of different international lottery markets. In my articles I try to look not only how lottos and lotto players around the world differ from one another but also uncover the underlying reasons for the contrast.
