    Lady luck: Lottery player wins twice

    BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Some people seem to have all the luck. Just ask Donna Goeppert.

    Earlier this year, she won $1 million playing a Pennsylvania Lottery scratch-off ticket, then turned around and won another million-dollar jackpot last week.

    "What are the odds of that?" the 55-year-old woman said, calling her good fortune "just unbelievable."

    The odds of winning just once are 1.44 million-to-1, according to state lottery officials.

    The odds of winning twice vary depending on how many tickets are scratched.

    Lehigh University professor Bob Storer placed the odds of winning twice at 419 million-to-1, if 100 tickets are played.

    Goeppert's win in January allowed her to pay off her mortgage and her children's mortgages, buy a new Cadillac and save money for her grandchildren's education.

    She purchased her most recent winning ticket for $20.

    Lottery officials confirmed Goeppert has filed a claim for the jackpot, which will take four to six weeks to verify.
    "I've never understood the term "women and children" as if their lives are somewhat more important than men."

    But is she single?

    The rich get richer. It's like the Yankees getting all the breaks and lucky bounces vs. the Royals.

    It should be a law that if you win a $1million or more that you are disqualified forever from winning again.
