Man Wins $100,000 Lottery Twice in 3 Months - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
The odds are about 1 in 278,000 for an individual to win the 100 thousand dollar top prize in the Cash 5 game of the Virginia lottery, but one Arlington man has won the lottery twice in the past 3 months. When asked how it feels to win the Virginia lottery, Joseph Sylvester said: “It feels great to win. I guess the only advice I have is: Expect to win.” Sylvester bought a new truck and paid off some of his bills with the 100 thousand dollar pay off in April, and plans to pay more bills with the second hundred thousand that he won in the July third Cash 5 drawing.
Another unusual lottery win happened in January of 2012, when a woman and her daughter in Maryland were talking about buying some scratch off lottery tickets, and a stranger butted in the conversation to tell them that there is a “lucky” store that sells the tickets. Since the store was on their way to the next destination, the two women stopped and bought some scratch off tickets. When they got home and played the games on each ticket, they found that the daughter had won 50 thousand dollars.
