Kentucky woman wins a second lottery jackpot 13 years later

Nov. 4 (UPI) — A Kentucky woman won a $ 100,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket 13 years after collecting a $ 1 million lottery jackpot.

Rita Bailey of Perryville told Kentucky Lottery officials she had been praying for a way to help her ill mother before buying a Break Fort Knox scratch-off ticket from the Mr. Miser Food Mart store in Perryville.

Bailey said she doesn’t normally buy scratch-off tickets, but she had a strong feeling that led her to purchase the $ 30 ticket.

The player said she initially thought she hadn’t won anything, but she handed it to a store clerk to double check with the scanner.

“He said, ‘you didn’t scratch it all off. There’s your number right there,'” Bailey recalled.

The ticket turned out to be a $ 100,000 winner.

“I was just so excited knowing what I was going to use it for,” Bailey said.

Bailey previously visited state lottery headquarters in 2007 to collect a $ 1 million jackpot.
