Luck

Some people are luckier than others. Some people rely on lucky charms. One extremely lucky man in the UK told a judge he did not get rich from embezzling?he got his money because he won the lottery 80 times.

In the Independent, Graham Keeley reports that a judge became suspicious about Juan Antonio Roca when the police discovered regular deposits of large amounts of money into his bank account that could not be accounted for by his salary. He was charged with embezzlement, but pleaded not guilty. Keely quotes him as saying, "In the past 15 years, I've won about 50 prizes in lotteries. And throughout my whole life I have won about 80 major prizes."
