Some people really do have all the luck.

One such Chicago man beat the odds at winning the lottery not once or even twice, but three times — and all in less than a month.

Christopher Kaelin, a 31-year-old “occasional lottery player,” won a total of $276,000 from the same lotto game over a three-week span, according to the Illinois Lottery.

“At first we were just ‘oh my God.’ It was a feel-good moment, we just couldn’t believe it,” Kaelin told HuffPost describing the reaction to his lotto score earlier in April when he instantly won $25,000 on a scratch-off ticket.

“My fiancé and I were so thrilled that I won $25,000, we went out for dinner to celebrate. When we stopped at a gas station afterward, I decided to buy another crossword instant ticket and won $1,000,” Kaelin previously told the Illinois Lottery.

Kaelin returned a week later to the same newsstand in downtown Chicago where he had purchased the first winning ticket, bought another, and went back to his office. That ticket revealed another $25,000 win.

On his way to claim his prize, however, Kaelin realized he read his latest winning ticket incorrectly.

“I was in the elevator looking at my ticket and noticed I had missed the tenth word,” Kaelin said. As it turns out, Kaelin’s price wasn’t worth $25,000 — it was worth $250,000.

“It just worked out — just a hunch,” Kaelin said of his decision to buy a third lotto ticket from the place he purchased the first winner. “The reason people obviously play the lottery is because they hope they win.”
