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