This Couple Won the Lottery Twice, Beating the Odds of 283 BILLION to 1!

The lucky couple, David Long and his wife Kathleen MacKenzie, also won a new Jaguar car! What will they do with their winnings?

A British couple who won £1 million ($1.48 million) in the EuroMillions lottery in July 2013 beat the odds of 283 billion to 1, when they won another £1 million from the same lottery in March 2015 – just 20 months after their last win!

You may find this really unbelievable, but the lucky couple, David Long and his wife, Kathleen MacKenzie, also won a new Jaguar car!

What will they do with their winnings?

Well, their first win was quite uneventful because David did not like to fly, so they did not go on a vacation. Instead, they were more practical.

David and Kathleen were truly overjoyed with their second win.

But did you know they almost lost their chance to claim the first win because David threw the ticket in the bin? But a nagging feeling had him fishing it out of the bin and checking the day’s results. It was lucky he did that because they had actually won!

They kept their mobile home and simply bought a house for Joan, David’s 81-year-old mother. They also used a portion of their winnings to get married after a 12-year engagement [they had been living together for 18 years].

They finally got married after waiting 12 YEARS!

This new win changes things for them; however, David admits he ‘ran out of excuses’ to not to go on a Mediterranean cruise.

We won!

What a lucky couple...

They will also purchase a new home; it won’t be too big, but it would surely have a game room and a bar.

The couple could easily afford this house.

What a lucky couple! But did you know they would still try to win a third time?

They say things come in threes, don’t they? Third time lucky and all that. You never know. You’ve just got to believe that one day you’re going to do it. We’ve done it. To believe we’re going to do it again. It’s happened. Could it be a third time? – David Long

The couple beats the odds by 283 billion to 1.

It could be someone who we truly love the most and it would be sad and frustrating if we weren't able to do anything for them.

Have you ever wondered what you'll do if your furry, four-legged companion ever needed CPR?
