A mobile app available in Apple’s app store, AutoLotto offers users a convenient way to play the Powerball on mobile devices. Among AutoLotto’s numerous features are MoneyLine and random number generation.

Each lottery win is remarkable in its own way, but some lottery stories truly astound, including that of double winner Stephen Cooke.

A Georgia resident, Cooke experienced his first lottery win when he was one of three players to share a $70 million jackpot. According to the Mega Millions website, this win meant that Cooke beat odds of 1 in 258,890,850.

While in the process of collecting the $13 million in winnings from the first ticket, Cooke discovered that he had another winning ticket, entitling him to another $13 million from the same drawing.

In total, Stephen Cooke walked away with $26.6 million from his double win, in addition to two $150 prizes he also won from the same drawing by playing numbers he chose through a combination of family birthdays.
