This lady has some serious luck.
At one time or another we’ve all won a couple of bucks on a scratch off ticket right?
Well, a Flossmoor woman $20 on a $2 scratch off ticket and decided to reinvest those winnings into a $20 ticket.
Normally doing something like this ends in you losing all your winnings, but not in her case.
According to the Homewood Patch website, Marla Gordon scratched off her Merry Millionaire’s ticket and won another $2 million bucks!
She told the website that she’ll take the lump sum (about $1.2 million after taxes) and will pay off her bills and go on a vacation.
She wasn’t the only winner though!
The GoLo gas station on Cicero Avenue in University Park where she bought it gets $20,000 too.
