So we told you that it’s entirely possible to win lotto more than once and that there are actually a handful of lucky people who can lay claim to having not one but two winning lotto experiences. However, in one remarkable case, Emily Leach of Mountain View California, whose two wins came just three months apart, claims to have accidentally given away her second winning ticket. And yes, she wants it back but you be the judge.
The story begins with Ms. Leach winning a one million dollar lotto jackpot in January. A good person at heart, Ms. Leach paid off some personal debts and then began committing random acts of kindness to people she would run into including total strangers. In March, she offered $100 to a homeless man behind her in line at a grocery store. However, according to Ms. Leach, when she was handing over the $100 bill she also mistakenly included a lotto ticket that turned out to be worth $260,000.00.
The state of California is reviewing footage from the store security camera and trying to determine who legally owns the ticket but what do you think? Should Ms. Leach’s generosity be rewarded or as someone who already won, or should the homeless man, who clearly needs the money, be allowed to keep the benefits of the winning lotto numbers at Ms. Leach’s expense?
