California Teen Wins Lottery Twice In One Week

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Winning the lottery may be a once in a lifetime chance for a lucky few, but a lucky teenager in California won it twice in one week.

The California Lottery says 19-year-old Rosa Dominguez won $555,555 on a $5 scratch-off ticket purchased at a gas station in San Luis Obispo County. After that win, she said she was nervous and “just wanted to cry.”

A few days later, she bought another $5 scratch-off ticket at a different station and won $100,000. The Lottery didn’t say when the tickets were purchased.

The Lottery says Dominguez collected her $655,555 in total winnings recently and tells the organization she plans to go shopping and buy herself a new car.

Some kids have all the luck!
