Odds are that most of us will never know what it feels like to win the lottery in our lifetime, but one man in California bucked those odds big time. He got to do the happy dance twice–in one day.
Rodney Meadows was running some errands recently when he decided to pop into a convenience store to buy a scratch lottery ticket. After playing, he jumped for joy when he realized he had won $1,000 US. Pretty good money right? Just wait…
The first thing he bought with his new-found winnings? Three more lottery tickets. It’s the cardinal rule of gambling, after all: never stop when you’re on a roll. And following that rule paid off big, because Meadows then won another $10 million US, just minutes later.
“He went outside, scratched it, came in and was like ‘we’re rich!'”, the convenience store clerk who sold him the ticket said.
Meadows was in such disbelief over his lucky streak that he had managers check the card twice. Interestingly, the store has a history of selling winning lottery tickets, and customers have been showing up in droves ever since to cash in.
