Lottery players across Atlantic Canada are rushing to get their Lotto 6/49 tickets following the announcement of a second major Lotto 6/49 jackpot won since August.
Raymond Lillington of Dingwall, N.S. won $17.4 million on the Aug. 15 Lotto 6/49 draw – his second Lotto 6/49 jackpot win.
“Lightning never strikes the same place twice” is a phrase you are probably familiar with. It is commonly used to demonstrate that truly unlikely things generally only occur once, such as winning a lottery jackpot.
However, for Raymond Lillington, lightning did strike twice – and it struck even harder the second time.
