Who doesn’t want to win the lottery? Wherever people are faced with situations involving a huge role of luck, they tend to lean in into superstitions. From hair, certain precious stones, astrology, numerology, and much more, there is no dearth of ‘lucky’ things and practices adopted by people to improve their luck. One of the most recent and remarkable incidents involving a lottery is the winning streak of a man from Maryland who has won the lottery twice in his life. And according to him, it’s because of his hair!
Good Luck Charm
While most people would chalk up the wins to pure luck, this gentleman, William Daniels Jr., credits his long grown hair. That’s right, his hair. Daniels claims that when he won the lottery for the first time in 2015, he had long hair, and this year when he won, he had grown it back out again. A resident of Middle River, Maryland, USA, the 31-year-old believes that his long hair helped him win the lottery of $100,000 in November 2015 through a Baltimore Ravens scratch-off and then again $50,000 on a Maryland Lottery Gold X50 scratch-off ticket this year. As for the future, he jokingly mentioned to the Lottery officials that he intends on sticking with his long hair when playing scratch-offs.
When he won in 2015, he used his winnings to buy a house, and as for his recent prize money, those funds are “going towards paying for my wedding,” he said. An aircraft assembly worker, Daniels had purchased the recent Gold X50 ticket at a nearby 7-Eleven in Nottingham and has declared to the Maryland Lottery Officials that he will make an attempt to continue his winning streak by buying tickets when he has enough funds with him from at different points in time.
