Mother, daughter get big lottery jackpot 3 times
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A mother and daughter in the Carolinas have three big lottery wins in the last 20 years between them.
The Charlotte Observer reports that Kimberly McCauley won $100,000 this month playing a new instant-scratch off game 10X the Money.
The North Carolina Education Lottery says that in 2007, McCauley’s mother, Amy McCauley, who’s from Fort Mill, S.C., won more than $160,000 in the Carolina Cash 5 game. But the family’s big win came in 1991, when Amy McCauley won $15.5 million in the New York Lotto. She also snagged two $1,000 prizes playing the North Carolina lottery’s $130 Million Blockbuster game in 2009.
Kimberly McCauley says she thought her mother had all the lottery luck, so she’s overwhelmed with the $100,000 win.
