Woman Wins the Lottery - Again!

Postby knapplc » Wed Sep 13, 2006 8:36 am

NEW YORK - A woman who won $1 million from a state lottery game four years ago has improbably hit the jackpot again.

Valerie Wilson, who works at a Long Island deli, said she won another $1 million on a lottery scratch-off game last month.

“The first time I couldn’t believe it,” Wilson told Newsday. “This time I said, ’God’s on my side.”’

Wilson, 56, beat some long odds to pull off her double victory.

In 2002, her winning ticket in the Cool Million scratch-off game, which has since been discontinued, was a shot of 1 in 5.2 million, according to the New York State Lottery. Last month, she beat odds of 1 in 705,600 when she got the $1 million prize in the New York lottery’s Jubilee scratch-off game.

A lottery spokeswoman verified Wilson was a Cool Million winner in 2002, but declined to confirm her latest win until a planned news conference. There have been only two previous repeat million-dollar-plus winners in the lottery’s history, according to the state.

Wilson still hasn’t quit her job at Emma’s Deli and Catering. Despite her unexpected bonus, Wilson plans to keep working until at least December, making sandwiches and ringing up sales.

The prize will be paid out in $50,000 installments over 20 years. Wilson said she used her first winnings to help buy homes for her three children.

“This one is going to be for me,” she said. “I’m going to live a little bit.”


I love how God is "on her side." Because God is so concerned with how much cash she has. ;-7 :-b

I'd be happy just winning $10,000 or something. I can't imagine winning $1 million two different times. That's amazing.

A couple buddies and I get together every week or two for cigs and coffee late at night. Talk about what we're doin, world events, verbally abuse the president, etc.

It's at a denny's. And in the smoking section, there's a whole row of video poker machines.

It's kinda sad how much action those machines get. From the same people, who look like they have the same life stories.

Same with the race track where I am from in PA. The smae people all of the time, trying to make money. If you have a few extra dollars no big deal, but when you see people putting Bills/ Food/ clother on the line, it is sad!

I'll never hit the lottery, because I don't play. Waste of money.

I go to Reno a couple times a year but I dont gamble all that much. I have the mind set that you should only gamble with a certin amount and when its gone its gone, like dont loose more than a couple hundred or whatever. But I rarely even hit the tables, I usually go during the Kentucky Derby loose money on that and get very drunk. ;-D
