Each time it was one of Todd’s tickets.
Two or three prizes? Sure. No one would question those odds. They’d say it was just a fun coincidence. But when the sixth, seventh, and eighth prizes were all Todd’s, the crowd
got a little edgy. The odds of winning that many times were astronomical. The drawing wasn’t rigged, so how could Todd be this fortunate?
