19-year-old wins the lottery twice in 1 week
Winning the lottery is a stroke of luck few have the privilege of experiencing even once in their lives. This 19-year-old just did it twice. In one week. California resident Rosa Dominguez was driving home from Arizona when she stopped at a gas station in Paso Roble, California where she bought a $5 Power 5 scratch off ticket. A few scratches later, Dominguez won $555,555 — the top prize for the ticket. Testing her luck, Dominguez decided winning the lotto once just wasn't enough, so she bought a different $5 scratcher, this time from a local gas station in Greenfield. Again, she won the top prize — a cool $100,000 — on the ticket. Dominguez revealed to the California Lottery what she would like to buy with her lucky winnings.
"She wants to go shopping and buy herself a new car," the lottery representatives wrote on its website.
