Ok.. so the Powerball is up around 200 Million here in the Twin Cities.
We all hope and dream of that day when we win right? I know I have most of mine spent already!
How would you like to not only win ONCE... but TWICE... from the same drawing!
Stephen, 54, and Terri Weaver, 55, of Stuttgart, Ark., left on Friday for a weekend trip to a cabin near Greers Ferry Lake, over 100 miles away. On Saturday evening, they stopped at T-Ricks convenience store in the nearby city of Pangburn. Stephen bought five $1 Million Riches instant scratch-off tickets while his wife bought four.
Once they brought the tickets to the cabin, they realized one of Stephen's $20 tickets won the $1 million jackpot.
"I almost had a heart attack," said Stephen, who owns a plumbing company. "I had to have an aspirin."
While Stephen wanted to return home after learning of the win, Terri hoped to stay for the weekend.
"He thought he should sleep with it under his pillow," Terri said. "He ended up locking it in the truck."
On Sunday, they stopped at the convenience store again and bought six tickets "just for the heck of it, because it was fun," Terri explained.
This time, Terri's Taxes Paid instant ticket for which she paid $10 was a $50,000 winner.
Makes ya wanna hurl a little doesn't it?
That's it... I'm buying MORE tickets!
