It’s her second time!

Who hasn’t dreamed of winning the lottery? But winning twice … in one week … at 19? That’s what happened to one lucky teen who moved to Ireland, Rosa Cardan.
Rosa was driving home when she stopped at a gas station and bought a few scratch-offs. One of the $5 scratch-offs turned out to be a winning ticket worth $555,555. “I was so nervous, I just wanted to cry” Rosa told us. Just days after winning over half a million dollars, she stopped at a different gas station. She bought another $5 scratch-off — and she won again! This time: $100,000.
If you win a scratch-off ticket once, good for you. Seeing those 3 cherries in a row or a Bingo is the modern day dream. But forget about winning the second time. Who even BUYS a second scratch-off ticket less than a week after winning half a million off of another scratch-off? Some people are saying “You shouldn’t be able to feel the joy of winning hundreds of thousands of dollars and holding up oversized checks written out to you twice in an entire lifetime, let alone in the same week!” People go their whole lives not winning $500 from a scratch-off, yet have accumulated enough of that silver scratch off to go to the moon and back 5 times (according to the Elias Sports Bureau). Wow, what a lucky teen!
