Do you know the expression “τύχη βουνό”? /t'ihi vun'o/

Greeks have countless expressions related to the notion of luck. One of these is the “τύχη βουνό” which literally translates into “luck of a magnitude of a mountain”. A mountain is big and quite visible; therefore, it is very easy to deduct that the expression refers to a situation of extreme and unpredictable luck. For example, if someone wins the lottery, people will surely say that he had “τύχη βουνό”. Because what are the odds of winning the lottery today?

So, did you ever happen to have “τύχη βουνό”?
