LOOK: Man Wins Lottery Twice In 24 Hours
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This Washington man had an exceptionally good day last week. Cary Collings of Puyallup, Wash., hit the lotto jackpot not once, but twice in the span of 24 hours, according to a press release. The 61-year-old, who has played the Washington Lottery since it started, according to a post on its Facebook page, landed his first big win with the "Red Hot 5s" $55,555 top prize on Thursday. The next morning, while he was out to claim his winnings, Collings purchased three "Bring On The Bens" scratch tickets, one of which fetched the $200,000 top prize, bringing his total to a life-changing sum of $255,555. Collings plans to use his first prize to settle a debt and has not yet made plans for the second, according to Fox News. He's not the first man who fortune has smiled upon multiple times. British property tycoon George Traykov won big at the lottery twice in two years bringing in a sum of more than $1.8 million. Read his story here.
