There are stories about superstitions, hunches and astrology. Superstitious people will be interested to hear of a player who hit a big jackpot off a Friday the 13th bet. People may think twice before disregarding hunches after a Nebraskan followed a hunch to a big windfall. And those who scoff at the horoscope may pause to think after a couple claimed astrology predicted their win.
Just how lucky can people get? There is the story of a woman who has landed a big jackpot twice in a two year span, and a the more incredible story of a man who snagged a $400 million Powerball payoff on just his second try.
