'Jackpot' Joan known by the locals, purchased the first three tickets at the same gas station in her home town in Bishop, Texas at a gas station. The fourth one was bought at a store in the nearby town of Kingsville.

Would be really interesting to know how much this \'lady luck\' spent on lottery and scratch cards in a year.
Long odds come good for this woman. Does sound like a complusive gambler though, still scratching after all those wins.
