Michigan Woman Wins $250,000 Lottery Prize for Second Time by Playing With the Same Numbers
The 72-year-old woman took home her prize Tuesday evening, just in time for some Black Friday shopping.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The 72-year-old, who elected to stay anonymous, told state lottery officials that she buys a KENO ticket every single month. She said she called the hotline after the Oct. 31 drawing and learned she'd matched 10 of the 22 numbers.
"With each number that was read, I got more and more excited," she said. "When my 10th number was read, I was in shock."
The woman previously won just over $250,000 in November 2010 with the same digits, which she said are a mixture of important dates.
She took home her prize Tuesday evening, just in time for some Black Friday shopping. She said she's looking forward to purchasing new living room furniture.
Experts advise sticking with the same numbers over time if you do play the lottery.
