An Arkansas couple strikes it rich, winning the lottery twice in one day.
Stephen and Terri Weaver decided on a whim to buy two lottery tickets going to, and then coming back from, a day-long fishing trip northeast of Little Rock, The Associated Press reported.
There's no word on whether they caught any fish, but the Weavers did hit the jackpot playing the lottery.
According to the Arkansas Lottery Commission, the first ticket they bought netted them a $1 million prize, while the second won them another $50,000.
The Weavers claimed their reward on Monday and planned to use the money to pay off bills and invest in their retirement, according to the Magnolia Reporter.
