What are your odds of winning a million dollars…umm..wait for it…TWICE in just 5 months? Meet, Melhig Melhig, a gentleman from Canada, who is living this absolutely outlandish dream right now.
Melhig has now become a multi-millionaire in just a matter of five months, thanks to his crazy luck. The man with two first names (which are the same) won two different lotteries in the span of a year, Huff Post Canada reported.
April is when the first legendary win came along when Melhig bought a scratch ticket from a convenience store and he ended up winning C$1.5 million. Following the win, Melhig quickly moved his wife and children from their small apartment.
Overwhelmed and amazed by the first win, Melhig continued to play the lottery. The second historic win of C$2 million happened in August when he bought another ticket from Giant Tiger store in Winnipeg.
Now, the 28-year-old African immigrant plans on buying a gas station or car wash and improve his English and communication. He wants to learn something useful, like carpentry, he said in a press release. He mainly wants to go to school and pursue his studies.
‘I’m young. You always need to think about how to grow’, he told the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, according to a press release.
