Arkansas Couple Wins Lottery Twice In One Weekend
Winning big in a lottery is thought to be a once in a lifetime thing-if that. But how about winning big twice in one weekend. That’s exactly what an Arkansas couple did recently winning a $1 million prize and a $50,000 prize within the space of one weekend!
According to ABC News Stephen, 54, and Terri Weaver, 55, of Stuttgart, Arkansas were heading out on a relaxing weekend fishing trip Saturday when they stopped at a store to pick up a few things and $20 worth of scratch off lottery tickets.
Once they brought the tickets to the cabin, they realized one of Stephen’s $20 tickets won the $1 million jackpot. On Sunday, they stopped at the convenience store again and bought six tickets “just for the heck of it, because it was fun,” Terri explained. This time, Terri’s Taxes Paid instant ticket for which she paid $10 was a $50,000 winner.
The couple will receive about $715,000 after taxes and have no plans to quit their jobs. Have you ever heard the phrase, “Some people have all the luck”? Right.
