How do you define luck? Landing the perfect partner or job? For most of us, someone who wins a lottery jackpot is the epitome of someone who has all the luck. But what if you won the lottery twice? The odds of this happening are so minuscule that it sounds like an idea too silly to entertain. However for one double lottery winner from China, it’s his reality as the world’s luckiest man.

The man, who wishes to remain as anonymous as possible, is being referred to only as Javi in the press. El Mundo, a popular Spanish newspaper, reported that the man came to Spain nearly two decades ago from Zhejiang, a province in eastern China. Between his arrival in Spain and his two huge lottery wins, Javi moved throughout Spain, working as kitchen staff in both Barcelona and Madrid.
Javi purchased a La Primitiva ticket in 2013. La Primitiva is one of the oldest lottery games in the world, but it gave Javi a completely new life. His lucky numbers paid off and he won a staggering €1.8 million jackpot. He was overjoyed and shocked, but this was only the beginning. Lucky for Javi, he decided to keep playing the lottery after hitting it big.
Eight months after first becoming a jackpot winner, Javi played EuroMillions and won €137 million — Spain’s largest lottery jackpot to date! After realising that this is real life, Javi decided to move out and up. He chose a home in the La Finca neighbourhood in Pozuelo de Alarcón, an area with the largest income per capita in the country. Not only is his home luxurious, but his neighbours are one of a kind too! One of La Finca’s most famous residents is Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid footballer extraordinaire. His salary? Roughly €21 million a year plus endorsements. Javi and Cristiano would throw quite the neighbourhood block party!
