Good Luck Runs In This Family

Alright, I’ll admit it. I think about winning the lottery a lot. I purchase a ticket almost weekly hoping to hit the lucky multi-million dollar jackpot. For one North Carolina mother and daughter, that dream has turned into a rich reality. And not just once.

In the past 20 years, Amy and Kimberly McCauley have enjoyed three big lottery wins. The most recent one, this month, with daughter Kimberly winning $100,000 playing an instant-scratch off game.

The North Carolina Education Lottery says back in 2007, mom Amy, won more than $160,000 in the Carolina Cash 5 game. The lucky pair also won big back in 1991, when Amy won $15.5 million in the New York Lotto. Back in 2009, she also netted two $1,000 prizes playing the North Carolina lottery’s $130 Million Blockbuster.

Good for them! Now maybe I can have them buy one, or three, lucky tickets for me.

    Wow, you’d think someone who won $15.5 million would quit and give other people a chance! :)
