It’s difficult to believe how lucky this lady was. Evelyn Adams didn’t just win the once, but she actually won twice. This was both in 1985 and 1986, and totalled $5.4 million, however this is apparently where her luck ended. She took her money and dropped it into the slot machines in Atlantic City.
