GOOD NEWS Perfectly-Named Man Wins Lottery Twice With the Same Numbers
— NBC Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) June 23, 2016
A Chicago man with the perfect name won the lottery twice - using the very same numbers.
Larry Gambles says he's been playing the same lotto numbers for nearly a decade, ever since he won $50,000 from the Illinois lottery.
The numbers he used - 01-06-12-14-25 - came from the jerseys of his high school basketball team.
And now, those lucky numbers have won the 65-year-old retired school administrator a million dollar jackpot!
“I can’t believe they paid off again,” he said, presenting the winning ticket to the Illinois Lottery Prize Center.
Gambles' advice to fellow lottery players is simple: "Pick your favorite numbers and stick with them. It worked for me!”
