People have tried many systems for winning the lottery. Some use ‘lucky’ numbers, others playwith a group to increase their chances, and some just buy a lot of tickets hoping to land the big one. And then there are people who just seem very lucky indeed, and you can count a Milpitas woman named Nga Pham among them.
Pham only buys one scratcher ticket a month. Each ticket costs $20, and features a top prize of $5 million. The first ticket paid out $20, the 2nd month’s ticket failed to win anything, and a third ticket yielded a free ticket. Her fourth ticket however snagged the $5 million top prize.
Pham has not decided what she will do with all that money, having only known of her huge windfall the previous day.
