Most lottery players spend their entire lives hoping to win that one lucky ticket. But somehow, Rosa Dominguez managed to win it twice in one week.
When she scratched off a $5 Power 5’s ticket she found she’d won the top prize of $555,555.
She said: “I was so nervous, I just wanted to cry.”
Only a few days after winning half a million dollars, Dominguez stopped at another gas station in Monterey County, California, and pushed her luck a bit further.
She purchased a $5 Lucky Fortune Scratcher and miraculously managed to win an additional $100,000.
Dominguez told the California Lottery she wants to go shopping and buy herself a new car. The teenage winner collected her winnings from the California Lottery East Bay District Office in Hayward, near San Francisco.
