This lucky gal, Charlie Lagarde, did exactly that for her 18th earlier this month. Celebrating the turn into adulthood, Lagarde marked the occasion like many of us do; with a bottle of champagne and her first, ever, lottery ticket purchase. 

Something was in the stars for Lagarde on this special day, which will now be more than just the day of her birth. 

Charlie Lagarde, from Montérégie, ended up winning the lottery with her first ever ticket purchase on her 18th Birthday! Can you imagine?

It's not the biggest lottery win we've ever seen, but the lucky 18-year-old is set for life. 

Pour fêter ses 18 ans, elle s'achète son tout premier billet de loterie et... gagne le gros lot! Charlie recevra 1000$ par semaine pour le restant de ses jours! #Gagnantàvie

Lagarde has won $1000, every week, for the rest of her life! To give you a little quick math that's about $52,000 per year, and will pass $3M over the course of her life.

What a way to kick off adulthood! 

Charlie Lagarde has expressed interest in studying photography and traveling the world - something that I am sure she will (now) be able to do without any issues at all. 

Lagarde's win also gives the lucky dep owner a bonus of $10,000! 

Congratulations, Charlie, and Happy Birthday!
