Quebec Man Hits $1M Lottery Win for Second Time in 9 Years
Jules Parent is a definition of luck: Nine years after winning the $1 million playing Lotto 6/49, the 69-year-old Quebecer has won it big once again after picking up $1,222,069 on the Crown of Egypt Lottery online.
Two Lotto Wins in Nine Years
Having beaten the one-in-23 million odds of repeating the remarkable feat, Jules Parent walks out another $1 million richer after the 24 July win on the Powerbucks Progressive Jackpot. Parent hit a million-worth prize after playing on $3.20 at the Loto-Quebec’s online gambling site Espacejeux and the Quebec gaming regulators have determined that chances of something like that happening stand at one in 23,437,500.
Parent believes he must have had some help from upstairs, claiming he didn’t know who was responsible for his win.
“Was I born under a good star?”, he asked.
Jules Parent is not a compulsive gambler as his frequent wins might push you into thinking. The 69-year-old Quebecer is just a regular player who enjoys passing time with games, as well with walking, fishing, and hunting.
“I’m retired so it helps me pass the time. Just like any other game of chance, sometimes you win and, other times, unfortunately, you head home with less money.”, Jules Parent added.
Jules Parent lives alone and doesn’t have kids. His plans for the big prize are as modest as they come. The lucky Quebecer plans to demolish his current home and build a new one.
“It won’t be a castle, but it will be in the modern style.”, Parent reveals.
Additionally, the 69-year-old player could be on his way to Las Vegas and given his streak of luck and fortune the most famous casino strip in the world should be feeling worried.
