The woman previously collected a $250,000 prize from another scratch-off ticket from the same store in 2020 -- and she told officials she was with the same people both times she won.

"I had a lot of fun with the first winnings and enjoyed every bit of it," the winner said. "This time I'm going to buy a house."
