This story is odds – as in the odds to win again after 18 years are staggering. Notice no-one did the math on that.
I can’t know whether any lottery story is true, but it’s certainly easy to discount the far-out ones.
Instead of a story about how their life changed after winning much more last time (allegedly), we get barely a commercial for the lottery.
A Nanaimo, B.C., couple that won the lottery 18 years ago has done it again.
In 1996, Charlene and Orest Gulka matched all six numbers to win a $2.7 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot. Then, last month, the couple bought another Lotto 6/49 ticket, winning the guaranteed $1 million jackpot.
Here’s a big winner story. No numbers, just more fluff promotion. Why do these two kids look like actors? Why wait another two years to marry? All sizzle and no steak in this story – what I suppose people have come to accept in the media.

“She can have all the ice cream she wants now,” he said.
The couple said they are still in shock.

The pair plans to wed in two years. In the immediate future, they want to “take a vacation and just spend time with our families,” Bergeron said.
