A 70-year-old lottery player in Delaware was already celebrating a big win when she got lucky again.

Anonymous recently won the top prize of $100,000 with Ultimate Cash Instant Game tickets she purchased at Speedy Gas in Newark, according to an Oct. 25 news release Delaware Lottery Staff.

“My best friend was the first person I told about winning the $100,000 grand prize and she came with me to claim it,” the woman told lottery officials.

On Oct. 20, about a week after winning the prize, the woman drove to Dover, about 50 miles southeast of Newark, to claim her winnings. The $100,000 prize was her biggest win since she started playing the Delaware lottery seven years ago, she told lottery officials.

To celebrate, the woman and her best friend went to the North Dover Tiger Mart in Dover and bought three Serious Money tickets.

She was lucky again: one of her tickets was a winner.

“When I scratched the winning $300,000 SERIOUS MONEY ticket later that day, we just sat there in disbelief. It was absolute madness,” the woman told officials.

The couple headed to lottery headquarters later that day to claim the second prize, bringing the woman’s total winnings collected that day to $400,000, according to officials.

The woman said that she gives most of her winnings to her pension fund.
