A South Carolina Lottery player is feeling all lucky, and not just for once but twice, after winning two big Mega Millions prizes in less than two weeks after buying the lucky lottery tickets from the same convenience store.
This anonymous player had a great reason to celebrate after matching the winning lottery numbers and taking home the $40,000 Mega Millions prize. But Lady Luck has something more in store for him. Not even complete two weeks later, he had a much bigger reason to celebrate for winning another Mega Millions prize worth 3 million!
The winner hailed from Grand Stand and bought the winning tickets from the same store while on his routine visit to the Murphy USA gas station on Kings Road in Myrtle Beach.
After finishing off his shopping spree at the Walmart right across the parking lot, the winner usually stops at this convenience store to fill gas in his car and play the lottery. Having already bagged the $40,000 Mega Millions prize on July 16, 2021, he felt a lot luckier and decided to buy another ticket for the July 26, 2021 drawing.
And to his surprise, it turned out that his gut feeling was not wrong after all. Because he got lucky enough to walk home with a $3 million Mega Millions prize.
After learning about the grand news, the winner and his family just couldn’t believe him being showered with so much luck and becoming the millionaire.
The lucky Mega Millions winner was just one number away from cracking the jackpot, but keeping the spirits high, he was not concerned about what he missed but was extremely happy and satisfied with what he had received.
With the odds so high, are you thinking how is that even possible?
Well, in Mega Millions the odds of winning $40,000 are 1 in 931,001, while the odds of bagging a $3 million prize is 1 in 12.6 million? Truly the winner was extremely lucky to bag two grand lottery prizes!
