California man Rodney Meadows turned a $1,000 lottery win into $10 million, but he isn’t the sole multimillion-dollar lucky gambler this holiday season.
A California man had been especially thankful throughout the Thanksgiving vacation after he won the California scratcher lottery not once but twice in a day, albeit at extremely different valuations.
On Monday, November 23, just three days before People in the us gathered around tables to count their blessings, Rodney Meadows walked into a Modesto, California, convenience shop and purchased a few $30 tickets that are scratcher.
After won hit for $1,000, he allow it ride by purchasing three more tickets.
Among those three paid to the tune of $10,000,000.
One in Three Million Chance
‘I could not believe it,’ Meadows told neighborhood KCRA news. ‘I had to ask the clerk during the shop and he said, ‘You better always check it again.”
Though it is instead common for scratch-off gamblers to shop for additional tickets after winning a value that is nominal it’s incredibly rare for someone to strike twice with prizes over $1,000.
In fact, it is been 13 years since anyone has one two jackpots in a 24-hour timespan worth more than Meadows’ take.
The manager of the convenience shop said it ‘couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy,’ and he felt Meadows was eventually likely to win. ‘He plays compulsively everyday,’ Fast Mart Manager Lakhvir Singh stated.
