Virginia Fike is one lucky lady. She accidentally bought two Virginia Powerball tickets earlier this month and became the first person to win two $1 million prizes on tickets bought from the same store for the same drawing.
Fike said she intended to buy one Powerball ticket and one Mega Millions ticket and pick numbers associated with her parents’ wedding anniversary, reported the Associated Press. The 44-year-old woman’s prize totals $1.4 million after taxes.
This sure has been a bizarre year concerning the lotto. In March, a woman credited her 2-year-old daughter for her new status as a millionaire. And few will soon forget the record-setting Mega Millions jackpot drama that ensued earlier this month.
