An American family used the same set of Keno numbers to win $100,000 in the Massachusetts National Lottery three times in three weeks.
Tricia Johnson was playing Keno at Papa Jake’s Sports Bar on Sandwich Road in East Falmouth on March 22 when she won her first $100,000 prize.
According to Johnson, she played consecutive numbers 1–10.
“I thought someone was playing a joke on me,” she said in an interview CBS Boston. “I thought I was looking in the wrong place.”
Johnson said she decided to try the same set of numbers again Monday night and won another $100,000.
According to her, she could not believe what had happened. “It was like lightning struck twice,” she said.
According to Johnson, she woke up her husband and made him confirm that she had not imagined it all.
The family’s luck was tripled when her son John Johnson used his mother’s Keno numbers that same Monday night and won his $100,000 prize.
The mother said she will now most likely retire her Keno numbers.
“So I guess I can stop playing them now,” she said, “because I’m sure it won’t happen again.”
