It's Just My Luck
Next best thing to winning is reading about the winners

Columbo Rouleau holds an oversized cheque for $7 million.
olombo Rouleau went from being a blue collar worker to a rich man in the blink of an eye.
"I checked the ticket ten times; I'm the lucky winner," said Rouleau in a release last week.
Rouleau usually buys group tickets. While he was at the convenience store, the cashier asked him if he wanted a Lotto 6/49 ticket.
Rouleau replied that he wasn't lucky and that he never won. The cashier finally convinced him to buy a ticket.
Sunday morning, Rouleau saw that the winning ticket was purchased in his region, so he went to validate his that afternoon.
After a recent premonition, he chose to purchase a ticket on his own rather
than with a group.
When he discovered that he had won the $7 million jackpot, Mr. Rouleau
didn't sleep all night.
The winner added that the timing of this big win couldn't be better and that
he plans on retiring immediately.
Rouleau intends on purchasing a new car, house and personal watercraft with
his hefty winnings.
