The lottery says it can happen, but you almost never see it. In fact, I've never to this point seen it happen.
After I posted the Wild Wednesday numbers for the Massachusetts Lottery Super 50/50 Raffle yesterday, I got an e-mail from a reader asking about the number 0016847, which also appeared in the May 8th results.
I wrote this morning to the Mass. Lottery and they confirmed that the rules state:
"Spring Super 50/50/ Raffle WILD WEDNESDAY $1,000 Bonus Drawing" Winners Claim Instructions
KEEP YOUR RAFFLE TICKET- YOU ARE STILL ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE WILD WEDNESDAY DRAWINGS
AND THE 50/50 JACKPOT DRAWING ON JULY 2, 2013
So it has actually happened that one lucky person won $1,000 on May 8th, and now they have won another $1,000 on May 22nd with the same ticket.
Now that's the definition of lucky.
