In “’Lucky’ woman who won lottery four times outed as Stanford University statistics PhD” (Daily Mail, 7th August 2011), Rachel Quigley recounts the curious tale of a very lucky lady from Texas:
Ms Ginther won four lots of vast sums on lottery scratch cards, half of which were bought at the same mini mart

Which proves that darn well anything can happen.
The odds of this has been calculated at one in eighteen septillion and luck like this could only come once every quadrillion years. More.
Yes, just like Darwinism. It’s impossible, but it happened, so there.
Some say that she gamed the algorithm. The Texas Lottery Commission thinks she was “born under a lucky star.”
More than one could say for other players.
