Wow, what are the odds.

We told you last night that one of two winning $636 million lottery tickets sold in the United States was purchased from a Vietnamese American gift shop in San Jose, California.

Now we’re learning the second ticket sold in George was sold by Young Soo Lee, the owner of the Gateway newsstand in Buckhead near Atlanta, reports Yahoo.

“Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I never had so much money,” the Korean American exclaimed when told she would receive $1 million dollars for selling the winning ticket.

NBC Bay Area reports one of the ticket was sold at Jenny’s Gift Shop.

The Vietnamese American owner of Jenny’s in San Jose is equally elated.

“I feel good!” Thuy Nguyen said . “I don’t even know. I cannot sleep tonight!”

The winning ticket numbers are 8, 14, 17, 20, 39 and Mega Ball 7.



The holder of the winning ticket in Georgia has been identified as Ira Curry, of Stone Mountain.

The San Jose winner has not yet come forward.
