Amazingly Lucky Woman Wins Lottery Twice In One Day

Virgina Fike

In early April, Virginia Pike bought two lottery tickets. It was her intention to buy one Mega Million ticket and one Powerball ticket. But she got confused in the ordering and instead purchased two Powerballs.

Annoyed at first, Pike, who selected the same number on each card, figured “If I win, I win twice.”

And that’s exactly what happened.

Pike matched all five numbers besides the Powerball, entitling her to two shares of the prize since nobody hit the Powerball in the drawing.

Her total amount won came to a million a ticket. According to lottery officials, she is the first person to win multiple one million dollar prizes in the same drawing.

“It still hasn’t sunk in,” she said after receiving her check. “It feels good, but it’s still like, someone’s gonna pinch me and I’ll wake up and this will all be a dream.”

Who says lighting never strikes twice?
