Iranian-born businessman Naeim Karimi spent his lunchtime glued to his computer station at his Toronto office on Tuesday.
He wanted to be among the first to enter the so-called U.S. Green Card Lottery, which began taking applications at noon.
Karimi has already entered the lottery unsuccessfully three times, but he told VOA via Skype on Tuesday that he felt his luck had finally turned. Mana Rabiee for VOA has more.
