Lottery joy for three members of family as they each win £43k using same numbers

Three members of the same family have each won £43,000 after using the same numbers on the lottery.

The father, 61, who is yet to be named, was the first to pick up a ticket for $1 (£0.87) from a Hampstead Liquors shop in Carroll County, Maryland, US, on October 13.

He purchased the bet ticket for the Pick 5 evening drawing, according to Maryland Lottery.

Then his daughter, 28, followed his lead and bought a ticket for the same drawing and from the same store.

Finally his son, 31, made a trip to the same liquor store, bought the same ticket and used the same numbers.

The number combination that all three used was 5-3-8-3-4. Those just so happened to the October 13's winning numbers, earning each family member a $50,000 (£43,400) prize.

According to local media, one of the three is planning on putting the money towards buying a house.

The other two are reportedly looking into making investments with the winnings.

This comes after one lucky bloke managed to scoop a £640,000 lottery prize just 13 months after doing the same thing.

Canadian Antoine Beaini first won the Maxmillion LOTTO MAXprize in Ontario back in August 2021. He did so again earlier this month.

Mr Beaini realised he had purchased the winning ticket as he checked the results of the draw on the official Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) app.

Speaking to the local media after receiving his cheque he said: "I couldn't believe it. I thought: 'Again?'

"It was more shocking than the first win.

"I told my wife, and she was very happy!"

He added: "I want to make sure the next generation of my family is set up comfortably."
