Not many 19-year-olds can say that they’ve won the Lottery. Rosa Dominguez is a 19-year-old who can say she’s done it—twice! Not only that, she accomplished this feat in less than one week!
Dominguez was recently driving home from Arizona when she decided to make a pit-stop at a gas station in Paso Robles. While there, she decided to buy a few Scratchers®, and one of those was a $5 Power 5’s ticket that would change her life. Dominguez scratched that ticket and discovered she’d won the top prize of $555,555! “I was so nervous I just wanted to cry,” she shared.
A few days later, still reeling from the emotion of winning over half a million dollars, Dominguez stopped at a local gas station and decided, why not try her luck with a $5 Lucky Fortune Scratcher? Well, Dominguez did it again. She purchased a single $5 ticket which turned out to be worth the top prize of $100,000!
Dominguez recently stopped by the California Lottery’s East Bay District Office in Hayward to claim her two prizes totaling $655,555. Not a bad week for someone who is technically still a teenager. As for her plans for the money, Dominguez tells us that she wants to go shopping and buy herself a new car.
Dominguez purchased the $5 Power 5’s ticket worth $555,555 at Eagle Energy which is located at 2400 Golden Hill Road in Paso Robles (San Luis Obispo County). The $5 Lucky Fortune ticket worth $100,000 was purchased at the Valero gas station located at 348 El Camino Real in Greenfield (Monterey County).
