Canadian family wins casino jackpot, then the lottery

Family from Caledon, Canada, wins a casino jackpot, then the lottery, all in one day.

Canadian family wins casino jackpot, then the lottery There is no better example of luck in gambling than the double win by a Canadian couple this weekend. Antonietta and Anthony Marrocco from Caledon, Canada, spend a fun night at the Casino Rama in Orillia, winning $13,000 at the casino slot machines on Saturday. They went home happy and looking forward to spending a quiet Sunday at home.

 Winning big at the casino, the couple forgot to check their lottery ticket, the drawing taking place that same night. But Lady Luck wasn't done with the Marroccos and on Sunday night the couple, which have played the lottery consistently for eight years, found out that they are one of the two holders of the winning tickets for Saturday's Lotto 6/49. The lottery jackpot was worth $37 million and the Marroccos will get half of it.
