Wel, a man in South Carolina must have taken it to heart — and now he has $ 200,000 to show for it.
The man went to a package store in the town of Summerville and bought two tickets with the same number: 2, 4, 5, 6, 9.
“If I’m going to play it once, more is better,” he told South Carolina Lottery officials.
And it was: Each of the tickets netted him $ 100,000.
Lottery officials said the odds of winning $ 100,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 is 1 in 501,942.
