Meet Mr. CookeStephen Cooke has never been especially lucky throughout his life. Well, at least he had never been extremely lucky until 2003.
Back in 2003 Stephen Cooke was feeling particularly lucky so he decided to play that week’s Mega Millions draw.
I think we can all agree that this is a life-changing amount.
Wanting to change his life and cash in on his “luck” Cooke decided to buy some lottery tickets.
Purchasing a few tickets using significant dates for numbers Cooke casually obtained his entries in the normal way most of us would use to pick our lotto balls.
What Stephen didn’t realise was that he had accidentally played the same numbers on two of his tickets.
This type of oversight would normally leave a lotto player feeling like they had squandered an extra chance at picking the winning numbers. With such extreme odds against winning most normal people would want as many chances as they could afford.
However, Cooke was not at all annoyed at making this simple mistake because he was unaware that he made it.
Winning TicketEven though Cooke had multiple tickets he only ever checked one of them.
This is because when the draw took place Stephen was very excited when the first ticket he checked had a line with all the winning lottery numbers on it.
To say Cooke was overjoyed would be an understatement.
But there was a much bigger surprise on the way for Mr. Cooke.
