SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/KXAN) — A California teen is celebrating two big lottery wins in a week.
The California Lottery says 19-year-old Rosa Dominguez won $555,555 on a $5 scratch-off ticket purchased at a gas station in Paso Robles. After that win, she said she was nervous and “just wanted to cry.”
A few days later, when Dominguez stopped off at another gas station, she thought she’d push her luck by purchasing another $5 scratch-off ticket. That ticket landed her another $100,000. The Lottery didn’t say when the tickets were purchased.
The Lottery says Dominguez collected her $655,555 in total winnings recently and tells the organization she plans to go shopping and buy herself a new car.
