Not only once but four times, is this just lucky in her blood or this texas lottery play has all the tricks in the national lottery numbers?
Let’s face it, some people are luckier than others. You’d like to believe otherwise, but sometimes you have to look at what’s in front of you and just admit it. Should you need further proof, I present to you Joan Ginther.
As the Corpus Christi Caller reported, Ginther recently took home a cool $10 million in the Texas Lottery’s $140 million Extreme Payout, off of a scratch-off ticket. That would be lucky in and of itself, but Ginther seems to operate under different rules when it comes to lottery luck. This was her fourth lottery win, and each one has been for $2 million or more.
Back in 1993, she took home a $5.4 million share of the Lotto Texas jackpot of $11 million, and chose payments of 270 grand (excluding taxes) each year for nearly two decades. Somehow, she didn’t win her next lottery until 2006, winning $2 million in the Holiday Millionaire game, a scratch-off game, and opted for a lump sum of $1.5 million. Then, in 2008, she struck gold again, winning $3 million in Millions and Millions, another scratch-off, and did so at Times Market in Bishop, Texas, the same exact store where she got her fourth lottery win.
And her luck doesn’t end there. Ginther doesn’t even live in Texas. As the Caller reported, her second win came while she was visiting to take care of her father, meaning it’s probably safe to assume that her last three wins came while a resident of yes, you guessed it, Las Vegas, where she currently lives.
