Can you imagine winning the Lotto jackpot twice? The odds of winning it twice is
22.5 million to one. I always say that I will buy a lottery ticket if the jackpot is over 100 million, but I never do. So how to win anything if I never even buy a ticket?! :-)
NEW YORK (AP) — How lucky can you get?
Adeline and Eugene Angelo won $5 million Thursday after buying the winning ticket in last week's New York Lotto. In 1996, they won $2.5 million after splitting a $10 million jackpot with three other people.
Eugene Angelo, 81, said he and his wife would share their new fortune with their three sons and their families. Taking the lump-sum payment of $2.5 million, Eugene and Adeline and each of their sons will get about $513,000 before taxes.
"We're a little older, a little wiser and there are a few more of us, when you count the grandkids," Eugene Angelo said. "We're still the same old people. Still very excited. It's a great feeling."
Adeline Angelo, 74, a retired medical secretary, said she hoped the new money will "buy us good health and longevity."
