"2003 California Lottery winner Patricia Frierson was living in the Econo Lodge for 3 years when she bought 1 ticket and won $91 Million."
She actually purchased a total of 25 numbers from 5 different stores. I believe 4 others from that batch were winners for smaller amounts.
That is what Oprah said on the show. Also, this what she said in the original LP story "I've been playing these numbers for years," she told KCAL-TV. Frierson said the numbers were dates important to her family, including the birthday of her daughter.
