This is the story of Mary. Mary was lucky. Mary won a nice chunk of change on an Oregon Lottery game and went to cash it in at a convenience store.

But any ticket over $600 has to be claimed in Salem, and she won twice that amount.

Mary went home and the next day realized she left that winning ticket on the counter back at the store.

Mary was lucky when it came to running into good people, too, because store employees dug through bags of trash in the big dumpster out back to find that ticket that had been thrown away!

THEY FOUND IT! Talk about getting lucky twice.
