Dec. 12 (UPI) -- A Missouri woman ended up making two trips to the state lottery office in a single day when her winnings from a $1,000 jackpot turned into $100,000.

Veronica Buchanan said she went to the Missouri Lottery office in St. Louis on Nov. 29 to cash in a Monopoly Scratchers ticket that earned her a $1,000 prize.

Buchanan said she stopped on her way home at the store where she had purchased the ticket -- the Bellefontaine BP in St. Louis -- and decided to try her luck a second time with a $1,000,000 Fortune Scratchers ticket.

The second ticket sent her back to the lottery office to claim a $100,000 prize.
