A Canadian man has been showered with extraordinary luck as he celebrated his retirement, rand in his birthday and won the lottery all within 24 hours.
Ping Kuen Shum, a native of Vancouver, won the British Columbia lottery on April 28 – on his birthday.
Incidentally, it was also his last day of work, when, somehow, he discovered that his single ticket matched all six numbers, winning him the $1.5million (N540 million) jackpot ($2million Canadian).
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation has confirmed Shum’s winnings, which he accepted on Wednesday.
“It’s unbelievable that all three events happened on the same day,” a delighted Shum said to the BBC.
Shum must be a heck of a lucky dude as lottery organisers say the chances of getting all six numbers is a one in 13,983,816.
To celebrate, the luckiest man alive took his family out to a slap-up dinner after which he added that he plans on sharing his fortune.
Way to go, bro…
