For a Missouri man, luck comes in pairs. Against odds of 1 in 1.36 million Ernest Pullen clinched his first million-dollar win in June when he scratched off the “100 Million Dollar Blockbuster” prize on a lottery ticket.

Third Second time is the charm

Patricia Demauro stepped up to a craps table in Atlantic City for only¬† the second time in her life and proceeded to hold the dice for four hours and eighteen minutes before sevening out. That’s a new world record beating the old one by more than an hour.
