If there’s a couple that have shaken hands with Lady Luck its Barbara and Doubles Fink from Edmonton, who have won the lottery for the third time!
This lucky couple definitely have a knack for striking it rich, that for sure. There latest lottery win is a whopping $8.1 million jackpot in the 22 February Lotto 6/49 draw.
But it’s not the first time that they have experienced the pure adrenalin rush of seeing the lucky lottery numbers pop up.
Back in 1989, Douglas shared a lottery win with four of his best mates, and in 2010 he and Barbara won a $100,000 prize together.
The latest lottery win took place on February 22. It was soon after the draw took place that Barbara double checked the lottery winning numbers online. She got the shock of her life when she realised she was once again seeing all their lottery numbers flash across the screen.
Their winning numbers were 9, 21, 25, 26, 31 and 41.
Douglas was out of town at the time for work purposes, so she frantically tried to call him to tell him the truly amazing news. At this point, Barbara had no idea how much they had even won – just that it was the top jackpot prize and it must be big!
Douglas didn’t answer his phone! So she waiting five minutes and then tried calling him again.
"He didn't answer, so I waited five minutes and tried again," said Barbara. "That time, he picked up. I said, 'I did it again!'"
“I knew we had all the numbers, but I didn’t know how many winners there were. I called Douglas back before midnight and told him it was more than $8.000.000,” recalled Barbara.
The seriously lucky winners claimed their prize at Northlands Park. Their lucky lottery ticket was one of two with all six winning numbers. A ticket sold in Ontario won the other half of the $16.3-million jackpot.
When asked how they plan to spend their latest lottery win, they said that they plan to spend most of their winnings on their extended family.
"Family comes first," said Barbara. "We want to make sure that our daughters and our grandkids are looked after."
The lucky couple also plan on buying a new house, as Barbara really wants a new home and after that they will also be spoiling themselves with a few tropical vacations.
