Was on our Arizona Lottery site winners page and noticed that this lady won one of the Grand Prizes "TWICE"; here's my thought on how this went down. She wins the big one and gets $50K and then takes some of the winnings and buys a butt load of tickets just down the street and gets lucky again!

    Just baffled that 2 of the grand prizes were just buildings apart.

      I've seen/read stories of Top Prize winners, winning multiple Top Prizes from the SAME store before. With the lottery anything is possible!

          I always read those and couldn't believe that she won twice... with the odds of even getting ONE are crazy! makes you think that coulda been someone else with that jackpot. Well, whos to say one day one of us won't hit big on the same game twice. I suppose I have no room to be jealous since I hate being negative and I hate that particular game  so I would have never won on that anyway.  Hehe. :P My mom loves Bingo Nights though...

          Actually, I think I recall someone a few months back who won 10K on the $2 Crossword making a statement saying that it was the second time they won in 6 months or something to that effect. I wish I had that kind of luck!!

          One thing I do notice is that over the months some of the AZ winners will say they won big on the first or last tickets in the pack. I always keep that in mind.

            We had a guy(R. Marsh) according to the FL website, purchase a $20.00 Billion Dollar scratchoff in 2010 and won a million, then last year he purchases another BD scratchoff and wins one of the few $10 million jackpots... I would say thats luck with persistance  Blue Angel

              I always thought that the state was broken into "zones" and the top teir prizes were evenly distributed? So you mean to tell me that if a game has 10 top prizes, its possible ALL 10 of them could have all gone to the same city?
