New Brunswick family claims $1 million lottery win twice in five months

MONCTON, N.B. - A New Brunswick family has won two lottery prizes worth $1 million each within the past five months.

Atlantic Lottery says Denise Richard of Saint Phillippe, N.B., and her brother Roger claimed the first Lotto 6-49 prize in December.

Then on April 9, it happened again.

This time, the Lotto 6-49 ticket belonged to Richard's mother, Evangeline Richard of Dieppe, N.B., who relies on her daughter to buy her tickets.

Based on the number of entries, the odds of winning the Nov. 27 draw were 1 in 5.7 million.

On April 9, the odds were slightly better at 1 in 5.2 million.

"To be that lucky twice doesn't happen often but it does happen," Manon Deslauriers, an Atlantic Lottery spokeswoman, said in a statement Monday. "We're just really excited that it happened here."
