A woman from Maryland is on a hot winning streak after collecting three large lottery prizes in under a month.
49-year-old Felicia Wade said she placed a Superfecta Box bet of ¢10 on a Racetrax virtual horse racing game August 17th and ultimately won $11,730.80.
Wade furthered she played again two days later and took home a $2,000 jackpot.
Previously, the winner visited the headquarters of the lottery when a series of Pick 4 combinations using the numerics 1-0-1-7 led her to winning roughly $60,000 in the July 29th drawing.
“I was just feeling lucky. I just study the board and pick four numbers,” Wade informed Maryland Lottery officials of her Racetrax wins.
Wade, who expressed she plans to share some of her winnings with her son, and that she used to be skeptical that anyone could in fact win lottery games.
“I never believed before,” she stated, “and then a clerk checked my ticket.”
Winning the lottery three times in under a month is virtually impossible, but has occurred in the past.
In 2014, Christopher Kaelin, a 31-year-old “infrequent lottery player,” won a total of $276,000 from the same lottery game over a 3-week span, accordant to the Illinois Lottery.
In a lottery in which you pick six numbers from a potential pool of 49 numbers, your chances of winning the jackpot (correctly selecting all 6 numbers drawn) are 1 in 13,983,816. That’s 1 shot in nearly 14 million.
