Last year was a lucky year for couple Vikas and Divya Kanojiya and 2014 is already off to a good start.
While at the Caroline Bay Carnival on New Year's Eve, Mr and Mrs Kanojiya won big at the carnival games, taking home 15 soft toys and six boxes of chocolates in prizes.
Mr Kanojiya said he was winning so often the carnival staff got to know him well and people were asking him to play for them.
The only time he missed a win in a game of bingo, was when he wasn't paying attention properly, Mrs Kanojiya said.
Last year was a particularly good year for the couple who became New Zealand residents in January and got married in a traditional wedding in India in February.
Now the couple are expecting their first child which is due in two months.
The couple have lived in Timaru for almost four years and own and operate a dairy on North St.
Mr Kanojiya said 2014 should be a good year too and they won't have to buy soft toys for their new baby for a while.
