Experience News in a New Way
A Virginia woman, whose name happens to be Virginia, went to buy one Powerball Lotto ticket and one Mega Millions ticket at the Oldstone Truck Stop & Restaurant. Picking familiar numbers like her parents anniversary and their ages. Like that ever works. She accidentally bought two Powerball tickets, so she kept positive and figured her mistake just doubled her chances of winning the Powerball drawing.
While Virginia was visiting her sick mom in the hospital, she saw 14 people across the nation had won $1 million from the Powerball drawing on TV. Two of the winners were from Virginia! When she checked her tickets, she realized she had won the million!!! Twice!! Two million bucks is twice as nice.
Even nicer, Virginia Fike says she plans on helping her parents pay off some bills!
Turns out little mistakes sometimes bring big rewards.
