Humans are of habit, and sometimes one of the nastiest habits is that of judging an action or a person and these judgments can be easily seen when people chase their luck and give it a try at winning the lottery. Some people do crazy things such as buying the same ticket for a specific drawing various times and this might be deemed as weird. But is it really that weird? And if so, would winning a couple of times in one day be weird?
Regina Aughtry is not the first person you have read that suddenly had the idea to buy a couple of lottery tickets with the same number and actually making her win three times! US lottery
For those who have not had a big win up till now, part of their dreams is that of winning just once! But even that means beating the odds which is not an easy task.
A task which Regina seemed to have done easily but let’s look at the prizes and odds of the DC 5 game. The top prize for a $1 bet is $50,000. To win that, you have to pick 5 numbers and match them in exact order. The odds of matching all numbers in exact order are 1-in-100,000.
Maybe if Regina had thought of the odds that she would really have to sin she would not have even dared to buy the tickets ! For those odds were definitely against her, however she followed her hunch and decided to buy the three tickets with the same numbers anyway. And with this decision she ended up winning the lottery three times in just one day ! Each of the tickets won her $50,000 cashing her a total of $150,000.
So maybe buying several tickets with the same numbers is weird, not everyone does it because usually lottery players prefer to make most of their money and spread it to cover bigger chances to win. But for those brave ones who do not care what others might say, they get to win various times a day!
