Spending $5 on a lottery scratcher usually isn’t a wise investment, but it definitely paid off for Rosa Dominguez, a 19-year-old from California.
The teen stopped at a gas station in Paso Robles on her way home from Arizona and bought a Power 5 ticket, which turned out to be the top prize winner.
“I was so nervous I just wanted to cry,” she told Cal Lottery about winning $555,555.
A week later, she decided to buy another scratcher (Lucky Fortune) at a Monterey County location and won AGAIN. This time not as much though, just $100,000. I’d be happy just doubling my $5…
She plans to buy a new car and go shopping with her new fortune. Hopefully she puts a good chunk in a safe account, too. Get that IRA girl.
