While all of us dream of winning a significant amount in the lottery, most of us also believe that after we hit the big one there’s little chance that lightning would strike twice. A teen from California apparently does not believe that, and the lottery gave her a couple of good reasons not to change her mind.
Rosa Dominguez was your normal teenager when she stopped for gas and decided to purchase five instant tickets for $5 each. That proved to be a financially sound decision as one ticket gave her a $555,555 win. Five must be her lucky number – 5 tickets, $5 each and $555,555 in winnings.
She was overwhelmed by the win but somehow thought she was not done playing the lottery. That same week she bought another $5 ticket – and won again. This time it is for $100,000.
She has since claimed the prize for her first win. Being a teenager, all she can think of is to buy a new car and go shopping.
