Californian Wins Lottery Twice in One Week

When you were a teenager, you probably couldn't imagine winning the lottery, let alone winning it twice in one week. Well, that's just what happened to Rose Dominguez. The 19-year-old was recently in Arizona and decided to purchase a couple of lottery tickets while she was on her way home. This turned out to be a fantastic decision for the California teen.

Dominguez purchased a $5 scratch-off ticket during her trip home and got a great return on her investment. She turned out to get a pretty good return on her investment to the tune of $555,000 when she scratched off the ticket. This is obviously more than made up for the few tickets she bought that didn't turn out to be winners.

A couple of days later, Dominguez decided to buy a couple more scratch-off tickets. She must have been feeling lucky about her recent lottery win. Well, lady luck struck again as one of the new $5 scratch-offs she purchased turned out to be a winner at the amount of $100,000. This is less than 20% of her winnings on her winner from a couple of days earlier, but she will find a way to live with it.

When she was asked about how she felt when she won the first ticket she said, "I was so nervous I wanted to cry". This makes sense as most people can't fathom having that amount of money as an adult, let alone as a 19-year-old. The feeling must have gotten even more nerve wracking when she won again a couple of days later.

Of course, if she's smart she will put some of the money away in her savings to help her plan for the future, In the meantime, she did what a lot of us would do in that situation. She went clothes shopping and purchased a brand new car.
