You know how they always say lightning doesn’t strike in the same place, and you can’t win the lottery twice in one week? Okay, fine, I made that second one up–plus, it turns out to be untrue, as Dundalk resident Michelle Fowler could testify.
On March 22, Fowler stopped at the BP station on Wise Avenue to buy $50 worth of lottery tickets for herself and her husband. She used her husband’s lucky quarter to reveal the first scratch-off was worth $100,000. One week later, the couple spent $50 on scratch-offs at a Royal Farms in White Marsh only to discover that they’d won an additional $10,000. And, yes, they used the lucky quarter that time, too.
Of course, your odds of winning the lottery go up dramatically if you’re buying tickets in $50 bundles multiple days of the week, as the Fowlers apparently like to do. But Michelle isn’t itching to press her luck; she told the Sun she plans on trying one more time, since lucky things come in threes. If that doesn’t work out, she says she’ll swear off buying tickets for a little while. “That means that I’ll quit while I’m ahead,” she told the Sun.
