The Israeli national lottery has delivered a massive surprise after the same numbers came up for second time in a month – beating odds of four trillion to one.
Viewers watched in astonishment as number 36, 33, 32, 26, 14, 13 rolled out live on television – in the exact reverse order as the September 21 draw.
A staggering 92 people correctly guessed all six numbers to win £700 to £1,158 while a further three fortunate individuals guessed the 7th “strong number” and scooped £700,000
Haim Melamed, a statistical consultant for the national lottery, said: “There have been cases in the world in which people have won the lottery twice.
“In the United States there was an instance in which a man won three times but the odds of that happening are extremely slim.”
It’s not thought the same numbers have been drawn twice in the lottery before – but one 57-year-old American has had a brilliant year on the scratchcards.
Ernest Pullen, from Missouri, won $1 million in June and then scooped a further $2 million in September.
EuroMillions chiefs are currently looking for the lucky winner of the recent £113 million draw – with one pensioner claiming she bought the ticket with her husband throwing it away.
