Lady luck went into overdrive for a Canadian man who celebrated his birthday, retired from work, and won £1.1 million on the lottery – all on the same day.
Ping Kuen Shum experienced the extraordinary hat-trick of good fortune on April 28.
Mr Ping timed his final day of work in Vancouver to coincide with his birthday.
He then also purchased a lottery ticket from the Parker Place convenience centre in Richmond, British Columbia.
When the lottery was drawn that night he had all six numbers – 9, 12, 13, 18, 21 and 29 – scooping the whole jackpot, according to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.
The chances of him doing so were 13,983,816 to one, according to the lottery corporation.
Mr Ping celebrated his birthday, and his new found wealth and retirement, by taking his family out for a dim sum dinner.
He said: "It’s unbelievable that all three events happened on the same day.
"I have worked hard for so many years and I’m looking forward to sharing this fortune with my family."
After his extraordinary day Mr Ping also said he wanted to make a trip to China.
His good luck was first reported by the BBC.
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation did not give his age or occupation.
