19-year-old Rosa Dominguez struck it rich, not once, but twice after buying two $5 tickets back in June.
For most people, winning the lottery is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, but for one lucky teenage girl recently, two tickets bought from separate gas stations both managed to yield life-changing results.

The first ticket, which she purchased in San Luis Obispo County, netted a $555,555 prize, while the second, which she bought in Monterey County a few days later, went on to net a further $100,000.


"I was so nervous I just wanted to cry," she told lottery officials.

When asked what she was planning to do with her newfound wealth, Rosa said that she would like to go shopping and purchase a new car.

She's going to be a very popular girl.    Having over $400,000 in the bank will do that.   Hopefully she has a competent advisor.  This could make her life so much better.   Advice I would give her: That new car, don't buy brand new.   Get a slightly used vehicle.   Put $100,000 into 4 separate accounts.   Only one hooked to a debit card or checkbook.   See a financial advisor to invest much of it wisely.

Oh no.   Just a few cases.   You can hide a few cases from friends.   Harder to hide a warehouse.

Amazing probabilities. So, it seems that the miraculous emerges when the probability nears zero.
