A teenager became extremely lucky and managed to win two lottery jackpots within several days, according to lottery officials in California.

Not many people can say that they won the lottery, but Rosa Dominguez, 19, can say she has done it, twice.

Not only that, she accomplished this feat in less than one week.

Dominguez was recently driving home from Arizona, when she decided to make a stop at a gas station in Paso Robles.

While there, she decided to buy a few Scratchers, and one of those was a $5 Power 5’s ticket that changed her life.

Dominguez scratched that ticket and discovered she had won the top prize of $555,555!

“I was so nervous I just wanted to cry,” she shared.

A few days later, still reeling from the emotion of winning over half a million dollars, Dominguez stopped at a gas station and decided, “why not try my luck with a $5 Lucky Fortune Scratcher?”

Well, Dominguez did it again. She purchased a single $5 ticket, which turned out to be worth the top prize of $100,000.

Dominguez recently stopped by the California Lottery’s East Bay District Office in Hayward, to claim her two prizes totaling $655,555.

Not a bad week for someone who is technically still a teenager.

As for her plans for the money, Dominguez said that she wants to go shopping and buy herself a new car.

Dominguez purchased the $5 Power 5’s ticket worth $555,555 at Eagle Energy, which is located at 2400 Golden Hill Road in Paso Robles.

The $5 Lucky Fortune ticket worth $100,000 was purchased at the Valero gas station located at 348 El Camino Real in Greenfield.
