Sept. 28 (UPI) — A Florida woman who purchased two identical lottery tickets for the same Mega Millions drawing ended up winning a $2 million jackpot — twice.
The Florida Lottery said Susan Fitton, 64, of Boca Raton, purchased two tickets that matched all five white balls, missing only the Mega Ball, in the Sept. 14 Mega Millions drawing.
Each ticket earned Fitton a $2 million prize, for a total jackpot of $4 million.
It was unclear whether Fitton had intentionally purchased identical tickets at the Prip Mart store in Boca Raton or she purchased the second ticket accidentally.
The Prip Mart store was awarded a $10,000 bonus commission for selling the two winning tickets.
