MARYLAND WOMAN WINS LOTTERY THREE TIMES
A woman from Maryland, United States has won the lottery… again.
The 61-year-old has not only won the $50 000 jackpot for the third time, but she has also won it through tickets that she has bought at the exact same shop.
The retired housekeeper told CNN that this time she bought two $5 Lucky scratch-off tickets at Talbert’s Ice & Beverage Service in Bethesda. Although the first ticket didn’t hit, the second ticket landed her the jackpot of $50 000.
After the initial shock subsided, the lucky winner called her best friend to share the news, reports CNN.
“When she told me, I was so happy for her,” said the friend, who joined her at Maryland Lottery headquarters.
“It was hard to believe that she won $50 000 again.”
The winner said her luck did not go unnoticed at all. Not only does she realise just how rare it is for someone to win the lottery, but three times over three years is life-changing.
“People play every day and not win. It’s amazing that I won three times.”
