12 People That Won the Lottery…More Than Once!

12. Joan Ginther

In 2010, Joan Ginther scratched away at her $50 “$140 Million Extreme Payout” lottery ticket to reveal a whopping $10 Million prize. This is the moment that most lotto players live for, but for Joan Ginther, it was just business as usual. Her new $10 Million was her fourth big lottery win. This big win was preceded with three other wins – a $5.3 Million Texas Lotto win in 1993, a $2 Million win in 2006, and a $3 Million win in 2008.

11. Richard Lustig

For Richard Lustig, winning the lottery is just as normal an occurrence as getting out of bed in the morning. Well, not exactly, but he has racked up an impressive seven wins. Though none of Lustig’s wins are multi-million dollar wins, he has racked up total winnings that have clipped the $1 Million dollar mark.

10. Calvin and Zatera Spencer

Just a handful of months ago, Calvin and Zatera Spencer hit it big with a $1 Million Power Ball winner, but this was only the beginning of a three-fold win streak within a three week time period. They followed up the first big win with a $50,000 prize total across 10 winning Fantasy 4 tickets just two weeks later.

8. Kenneth Stokes

Apparently Kenneth Stokes of Norwood, Massachusetts doesn’t like to waste any time. While every person on this list won the lottery a number of times, they did so across different games over a span of time. Kenneth not only won the lottery twice in one day, but he won the same exact Lucky for Life game. What exactly are his winnings? Stokes will receive two payouts of $25,000 a year for the rest of his life. Stokes won’t exactly be living like a king on $50,000 a year, but he certainly won’t ever have to work again if he doesn’t feel like it. Heck, a lot of people are living on much less than that.

7. Ernest Pullen

In June of 2010, a Bonne Terre, Missouri man named Ernest Pullen won $1 Million after purchasing a scratch-off ticket. Ernest was a retired military man but continued to work at a help desk for a telecommunications company. After winning the big prize, he decided to retire for good. Then, on the following September, Pullen purchased another scratch-off ticket and ended up with a $2 Million dollar prize. According to Missouri Lottery officials, Pullen was the first person ever to win million dollar prizes on two occasions in the history of the Missouri Lottery.

6. Mary Riedel 

The average person usually buys a scratch-off lottery ticket at the gas station/convenience store to have something else to do while they’re paying for their fuel. Not many expect to hit it big, but they do think it might be nice if the ticket would pay for their current purchases. Mary Riedel of Brunswick, Ohio won’t ever have to worry about paying for gas again. Within one year’s time, Mary hit a $50,000 win on a scratch-off ticket. Not long after, Mary purchased another scratch-off ticket (at the same store!) and hit a $100,000 win.

Virginia Fike of Virginia (weird, right?) recently pulled the lottery impossible. Virginia won the $1 Million prize twice – in the same day!

4. Racy Pel

Racy Pel had a routine of purchasing about $20 in lottery tickets every so often since a percentage of the sales go into schools. He never expected to win and always played the same numbers – some birthdays, anniversaries, and a few “lucky numbers.” Not only did Pel win a $32,000 prize from his tickets purchased on December 18, 2013, but he also won the $50 Million jackpot on the same day.

3. James Bozeman Jr.

James Bozeman of Tallahasse, Florida didn’t just win a couple of big prizes; he won a multi-million dollar jackpot two years in a row. The first win was a $10 Million prize that he followed up with a $3 Million prize.

2. Stephen and Terri Weaver

The stars must have been aligned for this Arkansas couple. They didn’t just win the lottery twice. Stephen and Terri Weaver bought their winning tickets on the same day from the same store. Granted only one ticket was a $1 Million winner, but a second $50,000 win is nothing to scoff at, especially when it’s handed to you for doing essentially nothing. Well, if your hand cramps, scratching those tickets can be tough work.

1. Bill Morgan

This lottery win isn’t that big, but it’s most definitely the most amazing lottery story ever told.
