Hitting the Jackpot – Is It Just Luck Of The Draw?
Winning the jackpot is every lottery players biggest dream, and while many have won their fair share of the grand prize, jackpot winners seem few and far between. Some players win back the value of their lottery ticket, others a few hundred dollars that allow them to pay off a little debt. And then there are those lucky lottery players who beat the odds and walk away with millions! Was there method to their playing, or was it really just luck of the draw? Meet Rosa Dominguez, a 19-year-old woman who won the lottery not once, but twice…in one week!
Rosa was headed home to Arizona one weekend when she decided to stop and get refreshed at a gas station on route. Seeing the scratch cards on the counter, she thought it would be fun to give it a try. To her absolute shock and delight, her scratch card won her $100 000 instantly! As if that wasn’t enough, her stop at a local gas station in Paso Robles just a few days later would win her another $555 555. After never having played before, Rosa was certainly convinced that taking a chance to beat the odds was worth every penny.
Paul Gestrun, on the other hand, is a 71-year-old retiree who says playing the lottery is his hobby. Paul’s first big win of $100 000 was several years ago, after which he described feeling “thrilled beyond words!”. His strategy? Keep playing and put your winnings back in. Paul never imagined he would win anything again, but his strategy went on to win him another $1 million just a few years later! This time around, Paul says he was so shocked, he ended up needing an inhaler from gasping so much. Paul spent a share of his winnings on a new vehicle and did a few renovations to his home. Two winners had some fun after jointly winning the lottery in May 2000.
Joe and Sue Kainz from Illinois won their share of over $360 million after purchasing a ticket at a local store. Before coming forward as winners, Joe and Sue reportedly kept the media in their toes by driving back down to the local store and watching as reporters tried to figure out who they were. The couple used part of their winnings to pay off their debt and invest in their business. Joe and Sue put their win down to luck of the draw – and what a lucky draw it was! One of the most heart-warming wins yet was that of the group affectionately dubbed the “Oceans 16”. 16 Co-workers at Ocean County Vehicle Maintenance jointly held one of three winning lottery tickets. The group had purchased the ticket with the hopes of using any winnings to restore what they and others had lost after suffering through Superstorm Sandy. Little did Oceans 16 realize they would hit the jackpot and walk away with a phenomenal $3,8 million each!
Some win a little, some win a lot. Whether it is luck of the draw, a stroke of fate or the result of a well-thought-out strategy, winning the lottery is not only possible, it is life changing. Persevere, take a chance – you never know what might happen!
