Lottery has been a major topic in the news lately as people try to win the millions of dollars offered through games like Mega Million and Powerball.
One 70-year-old woman has been getting really lucky while playing her hand at lotto.
The woman from Newark, Delaware won $100,000 after she bought two scratch off tickets at a Speedy Gas store.
The woman is staying anonymous, and said that was the most she had ever won when she got the prize a week later.
At the suggestion of others, she grabbed another three tickets to see if her winning streak would keep going.

According to My Twin Tiers, the woman was returning from the lottery headquarters after getting her prize.
She stopped at a Tiger Mart in Dover to buy three more scratch off tickets. On one of the tickets she won another $300,000.
Her friend had gone with her to get the $100,000, then witnessed her win the other $300,000 immediately after.
Her plan is to put most of the money into her retirement fund.
