All of us have dreamed of winning the lottery, quitting our jobs and enjoying the riches of the prize money. A teen in California, US saw that dream come true as she won a lottery worth half a million dollars on a $5 ticket she bought at a gas station. But the 19-year-old did it not once but twice, that too in just one week. She's clearly her own lucky charm!
While driving from Arizona to Paso Robles in California, Rosa Dominiguez stopped to get some fuel. At the gas station, she bought five scratch-off lottery tickets. That proved to be her best buy till date as she won the top prize of $555,555.
"I was so nervous I just wanted to cry," she told California Lottery
