An incredibly lucky guy recently collected a six-figure lottery win in Virginia, USA, after all of his 264 tickets came up as winners in two separate draws.
That's right, 264 tickets!
Jalen Taylor of Charlottesville won a total of $132,000 when each of his tickets proved to be worth $500, Virginia Lottery officials noted in a news release dated February 3.
The prize came after Taylor went big and purchased two huge batches of Pick 3 tickets within a span of two months. The first was 104 tickets with the numbers 960 he got for the November 18 draw, and the second was 160 tickets with the numbers 542 he bought for the January 10 draw.
Tickets are worth $1 each.
Both of his 3-digit combinations were drawn, netting him $52,000 with the first batch and $80,000 with the second, officials said.
All of the tickets were from grocery stores (Food Lion and Harris Teeter), and Taylor didn't say how he decided on which numbers to get. Players can pick any three-digit sequence from 000 to 999.
Taylor said, "I had a feeling. When you get a feeling, just play!"
He plans to save the cash and invest.
He beat odds of 1 in 1,000 by picking the three winning numbers.
State officials didn't give the odds of winning it twice in eight weeks.
