Missouri LotteryMissouri Lottery: Second lottery win in 2 weeks worth $1M for Missouri womanRating:

A Strafford, Missouri, great grandmother scratched off a lottery win two weeks in a row, and the second one was a whopper.

Doris Danielson first won $1,000 on a "300,000,000 Golden Ticket" Scratcher ticket, prompting a trip to Lottery headquarters in Springfield to cash it in. While there she scratched up a $1 million jackpot in the same Scratcher ticket game.

"I'm very fortunate, I'll tell you that much," Danielson said in a news release.

"My daughter and I were going to Springfield to go shopping on Saturday (Sept. 3), and we stopped by Kum & Go to get her a soda," said Danielson, who purchased her ticket from Kum & Go, 125 S. State Highway 125, in Strafford. "I bought her a $5 ticket, and I got the 'Golden Ticket' for myself."

Danielson, a great-grandmother-of-five, was still in the parking lot of the Lottery retail location with her daughter when one of her numbers on the "Golden Ticket" matched a winning number with a $1 million prize.

"Oh, it was so exciting! I about had a heart attack," said Danielson. "My daughter had to bring the ticket back into the store to make sure it wasn't a joke."

Danielson plans to share her $1 million win with her three children, just as she's done for all of her lottery prizes, but has yet made a decision on what she would like to do with her portion of the prize.

The first $30 Scratchers ticket offered by the Missouri Lottery, "$300,000,000 Golden Ticket" was introduced on Jan. 25 in celebration of the Lottery's 30th anniversary.

Danielson claimed one of 12 $1 million second-tier prizes available in the game. Players who have a My Lottery account have an added value when they enter their non-winning "Golden Tickets" into the accompanying "Golden Ticket" Second-Chance Promotion.

The first of three second-chance drawings awarding a $1 million grand prize takes place Sept. 27.

           Great Grandmother Doris Danielson from Strafford, Missouri should play MM & PB. She is on a winning streak after all.

                  Wow. That woman is very lucky!

                  I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the PB to win the largest PB jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars! I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the largest Mega Millions jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                          Let's hope so; she seems like she is so deserving of another lottery win!
