Talk about lucky!

According to CNN a North Carolina man, Scotty Thomas, wasn't sure if he bought a ticket in the state's Lucky for Life lottery drawing, so he filled out the online form.

"I was just laying in bed watching a basketball game on TV and I couldn't remember if I filled it out or not. I went ahead and filled it out again and the next morning my son asked why there were two different amounts listed. I realized, 'I think I filled it out twice.'" said Thomas

It turns out he did fill it out twice and he won both times!!!

"When I realized I had won, I had to lay down on the floor because I really couldn't believe it. It was just a blessing." said Thomas

Scotty Thomas is a dump truck operator. He opted for a lump sum of $780,000 for both tickets instead of annual payments. He wants to invest in his business, pay off bills, help his family, and perhaps buy a house. After taxes he will receive $551,851. Unreal!
