The strangest lottery,Today you will have a look at the strangest lotteries in the world. Some of them don’t offer cash prize but you do get lucky in other ways. Below you will read 4 types of lottery that are out there.

The Beer Lottery

Imagine tasting a beer that’s so heavenly that you would pay an exorbitant amount of money to taste it again?

The Citra Double IPA beer goes down smooth with a “surreal blend of crisp dryness and resin bitterness.” Sounds great but sadly there’s not enough of it to go around.

As this amazing beer is so rare, the demand for it is very high. Kern River decided to inaugurate a beer lottery in 2014 to accommodate for the demand. If you won the beer lottery, you would need to pay $54 for a six-pack.

The brewery also states that they won’t ship the beer to you. Instead, you will have to collect the paid for beer in-person way up in the mountains. It’s about a two-hour hike to get up there, apparently, and another two hours to get down. If you’re still interested in entering and you are lucky enough to win, we suggest that you take along enough water to drink on the way up and down the mountain. It’s thirty work but someone has to do it.

The Pope Lottery

Time to pray for forgiveness! Bring on the Pope Lottery

The Vatican City State runs an annual lottery to raise money for charity.

In 2017 a Raffle took place to stand a chance to win a white Lamborghini Huracán with gold stripes signed by Pope Francis.

Another lottery with the Pope in mind took place in America. With Catholics making up close to a quarter of the US population – 94.4 million people – and all of them wanting to see the Pope when he visited the country, the City of Philadelphia decided to come up with a fair solution by running a special lottery which gives everyone an equal chance of getting to see the Pope.

Bacon Flavored Lottery Tickets?

The next lottery that makes onto The Strangest Lotteries in World list, is a scratch card that smells like bacon!

While there are people that dream of winning huge jackpots like this weeks €184 million SuperEnalotto or the massive $180 million on the US Powerball, there are also people who dream of simply winning beer. At the end of the day, playing the lottery is meant to be fun!

Lottery player who thought they won

Stories of lottery player who thought they won

 Stories of lottery player who thought they won

 

Stories of lottery player who thought they won. For lottery players, there’s probably nothing worse than playing and not winning the jackpot, but some players have been through even worse. These players thought they won but actually did not.

Granny the fraudster

48-year-old Susanne Hinte, a grandmother of four, saw an opportunity and took it.

On January 9, 2016, UK Lotto’s jackpot hit a record-breaking £66 million and there were only two winning tickets! Hinte walked into the local Camelot offices claiming to be one of those winners and handed over a bleached out ticket, saying that she accidentally washed it in the pocket of her jeans.

While lottery tickets are accidentally washed all the time, what really made the officials suspicious, was that all the important info like draw date, barcode, etc was washed out and unreadable, but the winning numbers on the ticket were untouched. The odds of only certain sections of the ticket washing out were less than actually winning the jackpot. If Hinte was trying to convince the officials that she was the winner, this strategy wasn’t working.

This grandmother’s shot at millions was quickly put to rest when the real winner turned up with an unwashed ticket.

Hinte still insists that she did not tamper with the ticket, but once fraud charges were brought up Hinte promised to never buy another lottery ticket after her bad experience.

 

Winner spends the money before she has it

When EuroMillions drew in February 2014, a local from the Besancon area in Eastern France thought she won big!

She wasted no time heading into luxurious designer boutiques found throughout France and spent three weeks spoiling herself. During her binge, she managed to spend €4,000 on designer clothes, jewels, perfumes, and a purse. But her family was worried and asked her to double check the ticket before she spent a cent more. Turned out the ticket was a dub and while she had a designer bag, she had no money to pay for it.

Then things took a turn for the worse. Instead of admitting to her mistake and paying for her lavish purchases, this lottery player claimed that her designer purse, which just so happened to contain all her other purchases, was stolen so she couldn’t pay for them.

She was then charged with fraud, found guilty and was given a four-month prison sentence. She was also obliged to pay back her debt in full. If she simply double checked her ticket she could have avoided all of this.

In order to avoid this play online because we’ll always email you or call you to congratulate you on any winnings you walk away with.

Immigrant wins the lottery

Immigrant wins the lottery

Immigrant wins the lottery Immigrant wins the lottery, A young West African immigrant who moved to Canada two years ago has hit the lottery jackpot – twice.

Melhig Melhig, 28, won two scratch-off games in the space of five months. Total winnings? CAN $3.5m (US $2.7m).

“I want to improve my English and communication. And I want to learn something useful, like carpentry,” Melhig told the Western Canada Lottery Corporation when asked what he would do with the money.

Melhig, who hails from West Africa but did not specify the country, moved to Winnipeg two years ago.

In April, he bought a ticket and won $1.5m. Last month, he bought another ticket – and won another $2m.

With his first payout, he bought a new home for his wife and children. With the second windfall, he hopes to buy a business – maybe a car wash or a gas station, he says – and “go to school.”

Melhig had a one in 900 000 chance of winning the first time, according to lottery officials. The second time, his odds were one in 1.3 million.

So what are the chances of someone winning two major jackpots in such a short period of time? Difficult to calculate, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation says.

Lottery officials say everything about his twin wins is legit.

How did Melhig Manage to win twice?

Melhig was able to clinch his double victory through sheer bravery. While most winners are happy to call it a day after one winner, the west – African continued to ride the wave of good luck. They sat that fortune favors the brave, and this is surely one if life’s greatest ever examples.

 

This is another story to tell when lucky is on your side.
