Some lottery players have all the luck

It seems some lottery players have all the luck!

There’s a popular saying that 'you make your own luck' you just have to work hard at it and as it turns out Ali Jaafar from Massachusetts has certainly been busy...he has hit it big on the lottery 1,246 times this year.

Lottery Scratch TicketsWe will say that again...1,246 times!

Since January Ali Jaafar has defied incredible odds to pocket more than $1.8 million from lottery wins.

The lucky punter visits lottery retailers all around Massachusetts usually playing his favourite scratch tickets scooping $1,000 prizes, time and time again.

And there's more...You might think lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same family, but this family seem to be the luckiest people in the world. 

Ali Jaafar's who is aged 60 has two sons Mohamed and Yousef Jaafar and it appears both have been born winners. Again from January this year 28-year-old Mohamed has won the lottery 190 times, and 25-year-old Yousef, 158 times.

Smell a rat?

Well, the amazing and statistically improbable run of luck for the family called for a new state law to prevent lottery players claiming prizes with remarkable frequency.

The Massachusetts Lottery now has a policy that requires any player who from July this year wins 20 or more lottery prizes valued at $1,000 or more to be scrutinised.

In a clamp-down on possible fraud, frequent big winners will now need to prove they are genuine and not being paid for collecting lottery prizes for others in an attempt to avoid paying taxes.
