Arkansas Couple Wins Lottery Twice in One Day


When Stephen and Terri Weaver set out for a day-long fishing trip, they had no idea they would come back millionaires.

On their way to a fishing spot near Pangburn, Arkansas, the couple stopped at a T-Ricks convenience store, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock. They picked up a lottery ticket and headed out to fish. They stopped at T-Ricks again on their way home and decided to grab another lottery ticket while they were there.

While there’s no word on whether or not the Weavers had a good day fishing, they definitely had a good day playing the lottery, winning big not once, but twice. The Arkansas Lottery Commission announced that the first ticket the Weavers purchased netted the couple a $1 million prize, while the second ticket brought the icing the cake with another $50,000.

The lottery commission told the Associated Press that the Weavers claimed their reward on Monday and plan to use their winnings to pay bills and invest in their retirement.

Now, who wants to buy lottery tickets and go fishing?
