While the early bird catches the worm, it can also catch $118,000.
Sam Hawley, of Portland, Oregon, was waiting at a lottery payment center in Wilsonville recently to cash in a previous winning lottery ticket of $1,750.
Hawley realized when he turned in his initial winning ticket that he had just bought a $118,759 winning ticket.
All eight of his numbers used to play the game matched — winning him $25,000. The 8-spot rolling jackpot then won him another $93,759.60.
Hawley told lottery officials he had"used the same numbers for years."
