Man Wins Lottery Twice In 24 Hours
We probably imagine what it would be like to one day win the lottery, whether it's a scratch off or the big prize drawings like Lotto or Powerball. But do you ever imagine what it would be like to win it twice in the same day?
According to the Huffington Post, Cary Collings of Puyallup, Washinton doesn't have to imagine what a double-lottery win would be like anymore. Collings won the jackpot twice in the span of 24 hours, according to a press release.
Collings, 61, has played the Washington Lottery since it started and landed his first big win with the "Red Hot 5s" $55,555 top prize last Thursday.
While on his way to claim his winnings, Collings purchased three "Bring On The Bens" scratch tickets, one of which fetched the $200,000 top prize, bringing his total to a life-altering sum of $255,555.
According to Fox News, Collings plans to use his first prize to settle a debt and has not yet made plans for the second.
