Some people have all the luck! While most Americans will purchase a couple of scratch-offs now and then and find themselves losing a few bucks, others strike gold after taking a coin to their state’s colorful scratch-off games. The New York Post reports that North Carolina resident Kimberly Morris is one of those lucky lotto players. But she didn’t just win one scratch-off ticket, Morris somehow purchased two big winners in one day.

The North Carolina Education Lottery website says that on the same day Morris went to the lottery headquarters to claim a prize of $10,000 which she won on a “$4,000,000 Diamond Dazzler” ticket, she stopped by a grocery store and purchased a few more Diamond Dazzlers to recreate the joy of the scratch-off she had just won a bundle on. Shockingly, she landed a $1 million prize on the new scratch-off!

“She was freaking out on the phone,” Kimberley’s husband John told the North Carolina Lottery. “I couldn’t understand her, so I told her to slow down. When I realized what she was saying, I didn’t believe her at first. I had to come home and see it for myself.” After taxes and the choice of taking yearly payments or a lump sum, Morris ended up with a fresh $417,012 in her savings.
