Couple wins lottery twice? Yes, an Arkansas couple won $1 million and $50,000 lottery with two tickets purchased on the same day.
Little Rock, Ark.
An Arkansas couple who set out for a day of fishing came home with quite the fish story: Two winning lottery tickets, including a $1 million prize.
The Arkansas Lottery Commission says Stephen and Terri Weaver were on a fishing trip when they stopped to buy the first ticket at T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock. They stopped at the same store on their way home and bought another ticket.
That first ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner. And the second one netted the couple another $50,000.
The lottery commission says the Weavers claimed their cash Monday and that they plan to pay bills and invest in their retirement.
Winning the lottery may not be all that it's perceived to be, as The Christian Science Monitor reported.
