Some Dumb Luck! Or Not?
Okay, can someone explain to me how some people seem to have the Midas touch when it comes to winning the lottery? There have been numerous people who have won large jackpots more than once! I don’t know about you, but if you win a large sum of money, you shouldn’t be allowed to play the lottery anymore! Let other people have a chance to win why don’t you? Maybe this is just me being bitter, but… Come on! Stop playing the lotto! Let some of us unlucky people win once in a while!
Here are some people who have won big more than once in their lifetimes.
Joan Ginther – Total Winnings $20 million

Her next big win happened in 2006 when she won $2 million off of a “Holiday Millionaire” scratch-off game. In 2008, she then won $3 million from the “Millions and Millions” scratch-off. Her latest prize amounted to $10 million, which was won in 2010, off of a scratch-off ticket.
Richard Lustig – Total Winnings $1 million
Famed Richard Lustig has won the lottery 7 times by using some kind of method. The largest prize that Richard has won amounted to $842,000 back in 2002. The first prize that he ever won was about $10,000 in 2002. He is so certain that his method works that he has written a book that details his method.

Melvyn Wilson has won the lottery 3 times since 2004. His first prize amounted to $25,000 and from there, his luck only grew. His next prize was for $500,000 and then for $1 million—both in 2005.
Cary Collings – Total Winnings $255,555
Compared to the millions that the others here have won, Cary Collings won twice in a span of 24 hours. Now if that isn’t what you call a good day! The first prize Collings won was off of a scratch-off. The prize for the ticket was $55,555 and he won that off of a scratch-off ticket. He later won the $200,000 when he bought another scratch-off ticket!
Although there is no science or method to winning scratch-off tickets, it would appear that you can certainly win big with them.
Now… Just to get my hands on some luck…
