Woman wins $5 Million in two lottery games

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Usually most people who play lottery scratch-off games get little more than a handful of shavings from the goo that covers the numbers. But a North Carolina woman seems to have a knack for winning the games. Lottery officials say Linda Tate has twice won at the scratch-off game, for a total of $5 million. The latest triumph came recently when Tate won $1 million in the Colossal Cash game. She nets just under a half million bucks, taxes are skimmed off. In August 2008, Tate won the same scratch-off, picking up $4 million before taxes that time.
