Maybe Jack Whitaker hit it again.Stranger things have happened.
According to what I read at <snip>, that almost happened earlier this year:
Jack Whittaker, West Virginia’s most famous and infamous lottery winner, has won again. The West Virginia Lottery confirms that Whittaker, who won the nearly $315 million Powerball game in 2002, recently won a Powerball prize, but for a much smaller amount.
The Lottery says Whittaker claimed a $10,000 prize Jan. 25th with a ticket he bought at a convenience store. He matched four numbers plus the Powerball number for a $10,000 prize, said Lottery Spokeswoman Nancy Bulla. It was a $5 Easy Pick ticket for the Jan. 9, drawing.
That means Whittaker was one number off from winning another jackpot.
* you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy winning ones *
