Lucky Man Wins Two Jackpots in One DayPublished December 12, 2015 by Elana K
One lucky, lucky man from Modesto, California won two jackpots by playing the lottery twice in one day.
Sometimes, luck smiles upon you.
And in the case of Rodney Meadows, a resident of Modesto, California, luck smiled upon him twice in one day. On November 23, Meadows won two lottery jackpots: One of $10 thousand, and one of $10 million.
Meadows was out running errands when he decided to buy a few $30 California Lottery 30th anniversary scratch tickets. When he won $1000 with one of them, a hunch told him to buy three more tickets - the last three tickets left on the row. It turned out to be a pretty amazing hunch. With one of those tickets, he won an unbelievable $10 million and became an instant millionaire.
Meadows told lottery officials, “I could not believe it. I had to ask the clerk at the store, and he said, ‘You better check it again on the machine.’”
Greg Parashak, the lottery spokesman, said that the chances of a person winning the jackpot are 1-in-3-million.
A History of Winning
These are not the first lotto wins for Meadows; in the past he had also won $1000 two times. In fact, he is an avid lottery player, who bought four to five lottery tickets every week.
These are also not the first winning lottery tickets that the Modesto Fast Mart has sold; last month they sold a $25,000 ticket and two months ago they sold a $30,000 ticket.
Since Meadows’ most recent win, the Modesto Fast Mart has been flooded with customers who are purchasing lottery tickets with the hopes of becoming the next big winner.
Online Lottery Tickets
While Meadows purchased his tickets at a store, more and more people are turning to the internet to buy their lottery tickets, just like more and more people are turning to online casinos as opposed to land-based casinos. Popular online lottery tickets sites include The Lotter, Play USA Lotteries and Play Huge Lottos.
