SEATTLE — Talk about having a lucky day.

Within 24 hours, Cary Collings of Puyallup had just such a day, when he won the lottery not once, but twice, within 24 hours.

The 61-year-old first won $55,555 in the “Red Hot 5's” scratch-off ticket lottery on June 14. The next morning after claiming his prize money at Washington’s Lottery Federal Way office, he stop to get a pizza for lunch. While he was waiting for his pie, he went to the Fred Meyer next door and bought three “Bring on Bens” scratch-off tickets. As luck would have it, the first ticket proved to be a winner, and Collings raked in another $200,000. :fun:

Collings said he plans to use the funds from his first win to pay off debt and has yet to decide what to do with the rest of his winnings, but he did say he plans to return to his job at the Boeing Auburn plant.

Some people have all the luck. And some of us have none. Sigh.
