There are some interesting lottery wins this week, including those of a Dane who beat the entry deadline to win big, an Irishman who wins after nearly losing his house, and a group of Canadians who won after the man designated to purchase tickets persisted despite a ffailed first attempt.
Inspiring lottery wins have been posted by a woman who promised to use part of her wins to fund college scholarships, and a man who won a $29.8 million jackpot who will give most of it away to charity.

Dane Beats Deadline To Bag Lottery Jackpot
A story of lottery luck in Denmark illustrates just how blessings find their way to their intended recipient. A Danish man won the lottery after just beating the deadline for submitting his entry ticket – he purchased and registered his lucky lottery entry just 81 seconds before the deadline! Ronny Andersen became 3.2 million kroner ($521,000) richer, after going to the supermarket for food, giving in to an urge to buy a lottery ticket, and barely beating a 6pm deadline.

It seems like, lady luck sometimes tests those whom she would like to visit. Take the case of David Primmer who heads a syndicate of eight employees of United Rentals; his first attempt to purchase tickets at the store failed when his bank card did not work, so he purchased the syndicate’s entry at Jubber’s Convenience as soon as he got to back Labrador. And his reward for his persistence is a $30 million winner’s check.
