Man Wins $10 Million Lottery Ticket Just Moments After Winning $1,000
Rodney Meadows, from Modesto, California, was stunned to get two winning tickets in a row while out running errands.
One very lucky man scratched off a $10 million lottery ticket just moments after discovering he had won $1,000.
Rodney Meadows, from Modesto, California, was running errands on November 23 when he decided to buy $30 California Lottery 30th anniversary scratchers tickets, lottery officials said.
He won $1,000 on the first ticket he bought and decided to go back for more.
Fast Mart Manager Lakhvir Singh told KCRA: "We had three last tickets left on that row and he said, 'give me those three too.'"
When Meadows scratched off one of the tickets, he was stunned to discover he had won the $10 million prize.
"I could not believe it," Meadows said. "I had to ask the clerk at the store, and he said, 'You better check it again at the machine.'"
He has previously won $1,000 on two lottery tickets. He doesn't yet know what he'll do with his winnings, he said.
The owner of the Fast Mart where the ticket was bought will also receive a bonus of $50,000, which he said he will use to remodel the store.
