(Newser) – A California teen is celebrating two big lottery wins in a week. The California Lottery says 19-year-old Rosa Dominguez won $555,555 on a $5 scratch-off ticket purchased at a gas station. After that win, she said she was nervous and "just wanted to cry." A few days later, she bought another $5 scratch-off ticket at a different station and won $100,000, the AP reports. The Lottery didn't say when the tickets were purchased. The Lottery says Dominguez collected her $655,555 in total winnings recently and tells the organization she plans to go shopping and buy herself a new car. (Read more lottery winner stories.)
