April Fools’ pranks might be everywhere on the Internet today, but this isn’t one of them.
A U.K. couple won £1 million ($1.22 million USD) from the EuroMillions lottery last week for the second time in as many years. They amazingly beat the 283-billion-to-one odds and made sure to celebrate accordingly.
David and Kathleen Long had been engaged for 12 years before purchasing their first winning ticket in 2013 that bankrolled their “smashing” wedding.
“David was always convinced he’d win big,” Kathleen told the Mirror. “It’s brilliant.”
His trick seems easy to replicate: “Just believe that one day you will do it.”
So that’s what you’ve been doing wrong.
