Husband and wife who bought TWO winning lotto tickets within hours
An Arkansas couple who set out for a day of fishing came home with quite the fish story: Two winning lottery tickets, including a $1 million prize.
The Arkansas Lottery Commission says Stephen and Terri Weaver were on a fishing trip when they stopped to buy the first ticket at T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock.
They stopped at the same store on their way home and bought another ticket.
The couple made the stops during their weekend trip to Greers Ferry Lake.
That first ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner. And the second one netted the couple another $50,000.
The lottery commission says the Weavers claimed their cash on Monday and that they plan to pay bills and invest in their retirement.
Days ago, a homeless man living at a rescue mission in Greenville, South Carolina had a similar stroke of luck after buying a winning lottery ticket.
The man, whose name was not released, won $200,000 after he bought a $10 scratch-off ticket.
The man told lottery officials he has lived in Greenville his entire life and used to work construction jobs but after hard times hit, he's been living at a rescue mission.
Winning: Stephen and Terri Weaver of Stuffgart both purchased winning scratch-off tickets, collecting $1,050,000 from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery
Prize tickets: The Weavers purchased both tickets at the T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, Arkansas
