Can luck, or good fortune, be inherited?
Earlier this year we wrote about a lucky lottery story, from 2011, that focused on the McCauley family. Kimberly was delighted when she won $100,000 in North Carolina in a new scratcher game because she'd never imagined ever winning a prize.
She'd always assumed the odds were against her, as her mother had already won big prizes in two other lotteries!
Then there are those of us who have the opposite, tragic experiences that plague our families.
To return to our opening question, do you think luck - good or bad - runs in your family?
