They may well be the luckiest family in North Carolina.
The McCauley family have racked up 3 big lottery wins over the years, with daughter Kimberly being the most recent winner just this week.
Kimberly just collected $100,000 after winning the top prize in the North Carolina Lottery’s “10X the Money” scratch off game.
But it was only 4 years ago that Amy, Kimberley’s mother, scooped over $160,000 on the Carolina Cash 5 game. Not to mention her two $1,000 wins in 2009.
The real family jackpot though was 20 years ago now, when the McCauley’s collected $15.5 Million from the New York Lotto.
Kimberley was convinced her mother had all of the family luck, until her big $100,000 scratch card win:
I never thought I’d win anything. I figured my mom was hogging all the luck. This is so overwhelming, but it’s a good kind of overwhelming.
At first she was thrilled when she thought it was only a $10,000 win. It was only when she was telling her mother on the phone that it suddenly became clear – she had actually won 10 times that amount, and hit one of just 6 available $100,000 prizes.
So what is the McCauley family secret to winning the lottery?
It’s quite simple – merely patience. And regularly buying a ticket of course.
