Lynne McGovern of Homer Glen, Chicago, just collected $325,000 from an $8 quick pick ticket.
But she also revealed that it was just a couple of years ago she was collecting $100,000 from a scratch-off ticket, and she had also previously won $45,000 on the Lotto.
Lottery winners that have won multiple big prizes are not that common. Those that understand the reason why they have won are even rarer.
But Lynne was quite clear about her secret to winning – it was luck, pure and simple.
