We Should All Have Such Luck

Minnesota man wins $25,000 lottery two days in a row

An airline pilot from Maplewood won a $25,000 lottery jackpot — two days in a row.

Raymond Snouffer Jr. matched the winning numbers 11-14-23-26-31 to win Saturday's Northstar Cash drawing with odds of about 170,000 to 1, Minnesota Lottery officials said.

On Sunday, Snouffer stuck with 11 and switched to 3-7-19-28 — and won again.

Lottery officials said such a sequence was so farfetched that the odds against it were "virtually incalculable."
