Today we’re going to tell you two stories about lottery wins that are quite crazy, but also downright fantastic. The first story is from Roseville, Minnesota, and the other comes from San Francisco. We don’t get to hear many lottery stories from San Francisco, so read further to find out what happened to these two winners!
Let’s face it: Most people would be more than happy to hit a big lottery win once in their lives. For this winner, in particular, wasn’t satisfied with his first win. Jeffrey Bock of St. Paul in Minnesota is already on to his second big lottery
Jeffrey Bock won his second massive lottery prize Sunday night after he matched all 12 main numbers in the ‘All or Nothing’ drawing. For his tremendous lucky streak, Bock got to walk away $100,000 richer.
“I scanned my ticket and the message said I needed to claim the prize at the Lottery,” Bock told lottery officials at the Minnesota lottery headquarters. Initially, like so many other players, he didn’t understand just how much he had won. He initially thought he had won $1,000. One of his good friends told him that he was, in fact, a $100,000 winner. Jeffrey then responded: “If it’s $100,000, I’m fainting. So you better bring water!”
Jeffrey and his friend both headed over to the lottery’s office in Roseville, with the bottle of water just in case Jeffrey fainted! After arriving and meeting with the officials, they were told that Jeffrey had won the $100,000 top prize. Jeffrey didn’t faint, seeing that he had prepared himself, and he was extremely overwhelmed but happy with the news. “I thought to myself, jeepers, I’m having a good day!” he recalled.
Jeffrey had a really good year, in fact, seeing that previously he had won $20,000 playing a scratch card game. Jeffrey said that for this $100,000 win, he randomly chose the ‘All or Nothing’ numbers “to win, baby!" He bought the lucky ticket at a Speedstop Sunrise in St. Cloud. The store got rewarded with a $1,000 bonus for selling Jeffrey the winning card.
Playing the lottery has its bonuses. Even if you don’t win, rest assured that your money is going to a good place. Since 1990, the Lottery has raised more than $2.4 billion for state programs. The lottery fun helps fund necessary functions such as public education, safety, and human services. More than $1 billion has also been used to fund important environmental programs.
Our next story comes all the way from San Francisco. The winner’s name is Hubert Tang. Hubert spent a 20-dollar-bill that he found on the street, to buy himself lottery tickets. The lottery tickets, however, ended up winning him a million dollars! What are the odds of that!
Hubert Tang is a Californian bartender who found the dollar bill outside of the San Francisco International Airport. He bought two scratch-off tickets at a store called Andrea’s market in Millbrae, according to the California State Lottery.
Tang shared with the Californian Lottery Commission that he actually hadn’t bought a lottery ticket in over ten years and that he was so shocked when he realized he’d won the top prize of one million dollars!
When asked about what happened, Hubert said: “I scratched the ticket outside of the store. I told my friend who I was with, that I didn’t know if it was real but, ‘I think I just won a million dollars.’”
Hubert isn’t in any rush to start spending the cash and he plans on putting his winnings into a savings account. He said he might even use some of the winnings to donate to charity. “Maybe I’ll start leaving $20 bills on the street in random places,” Tang said. The market who sold Tang the winning ticket will receive a bonus reward of $5,000!
Congratulations to Hubert and to Jeffrey for defying the odds and taking home terrific prizes!
