An unidentified South Carolina man walks into the same gas station and wins the lottery twice in 2 weeks. This man isn't just lucky, he's blessed!
Can you imagine winning the lottery not just once but twice? Either way, I imagine this gentleman feels grateful, blessed, and humbled that God would bless him with riches that can be used not only to live without ever having to worry about finances again but perhaps he can do something good with his winnings, too.
This man's odds of winning $40,000 were 1 in 931,001. The odds of winning the million-dollar jackpot are a whopping 1 in 13 million. And somehow he defied all the odds, winning the lottery twice, scoring both!
A Double Payout
This lucky gentleman won $40,000 on July 16 after purchasing a Mega Millions Quick Pick from a Myrtle Beach gas station. Then two weeks later, he purchased another Mega Millions Quick Pick and won three million dollars!
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “My family was shocked when I broke the news.”
The gentleman who won the lottery twice told the game officials that he usually drops by the gas station after he goes to Walmart for groceries and weekly supplies. I wonder if he will continue to shop at Walmart or will he shop at fancier stores now that he's a millionaire. Either way, we know he isn't just lucky but blessed.
A grinch or two may not think so because both times the man played the Mega Millions Quick Pick, he was one number wrong for the jackpot both times. Either way, I think those are pretty good odds playing into his favor.
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21
