It just happened here in Florida. It wasn't $15 million, but winning MegaMoney twice is still a big deal (at least it would be to me!)  Here is part of a Press Release from the Florida web site yesterday.  Congrats to this woman.  I've been playing the same game for years...nothing.  When it's your time, it's your time! 



TALLAHASSEE-- The Florida Lottery announced today MEGA MONEY™ winner Teresa Y. Hammonds, 46, of Orlando, claimed the Jan. 30 estimated $2 million MEGA MONEY jackpot.

Hammonds chose the one-time lump sum payment option for her winnings in the amount of $1,304,890. She purchased her winning MEGA MONEY ticket at Kangaroo Express, 45489 U.S. Highway 27, Davenport, which will receive a bonus incentive of $5,000 for selling the top prize winning ticket. The winning numbers were:

04 - 29 - 33 - 44 and the MEGABALL® was 07

According to Hammonds, this is her second time winning MEGA MONEY. She won $320,235.95 on April 22, 1998, claiming the only winning jackpot ticket.

"That's my game," said Hammonds. "It's a blessing."

Hammonds was at home watching TV when she saw the winning numbers flash across the TV screen.

"I said, 'Oh my God, I did it again,'" exclaimed Hammonds.

There's a story on the Georgia Lottery website about someone who recently won their 3rd jackpot in just over 2 years:

$2,500,000 - January 2007
$1,000,000 - April 2006
$350,000 - September 2004

That's almost 4 million dollars.  Must be nice!

    There goes the "odds theory" again out the window. It is always just "luck" to the seemingly unlucky, and skill or fate to the seemingly "lucky."
