Carol Craver is a loyal lottery player and has been ever since the California Lottery first began selling tickets30 years ago. In fact, she remembers voting “yes” on Proposition 37 in 1984, which was the ballot initiative that helped launch the Lottery.
She is also a loyal 2nd Chance player. Craver says she enters the numbers of some of her non-winning games, takes a break, then enters some more. This strategy has finally paid off for her big time! That’s because Craver’s $5 California Lucky Life ticket was drawn to win the end-of-game’s top prize, which in this case is $2,500 a week for 25 years – or a whopping $3.25 million!
“I’ve always been lucky, but nothing like this!” Craver explained. “I won $1,000 in May, so when I got the email from the Lottery I got excited. When I realized what I won, I fell to my knees and began to pray. It’s amazing!”
Craver plans to save most of her prize, invest, maybe head to Las Vegas or take a dream trip to Alaska. “But I won’t fly so it’ll have to be on a cruise ship,” she added.
