A Woman Won a $1 Million Lottery Twice in One Day

Virginia Pike, from, heh, Virginia, is infinitely more lucky than you. In fact, she's twice as infinitely more lucky because she won a $1 million lottery prize TWICE in the same day. What!

Pike had two tickets with the same number on them and though she didn't match all 6 numbers for a giganto-sized mega millions payday, she managed to score 5 out of 6 numbers on the tickets. Doing that pays out $1 million and since she had two tickets, she gets $2 million. How did she manage to get the winning number twice? Well, Pike used a very thoughtful strategy. She told ABC:

"I picked numbers based on my parents' anniversary and their ages at that time, divided by the year they were married"

Does that even make sense? And even if it made sense, how does that make sense to come up with? If you can figure out that winning formula, you deserve to win. Congrats Virginia from Virginia. [ABC]
