Indy woman, 91, wins lottery twice in 3 months

Posted: Updated:

A 91-year-old Indianapolis woman is planning to do some traveling after beating astronomical odds to win two big lottery payouts in the past three months.
    
Lena Eaton won $300,000 in August with a Quick Draw ticket. On Thursday, the great grandmother claimed another $99,999 at the Hoosier Lottery headquarters by turning in a winning Scorchin' Hot 9s scratch-off ticket.
    
The Indianapolis Star reports the odds of winning both are one in 5.7 trillion.
    
Eaton told lottery officials she had already started some home improvements after her $300,000 August win. With her second big win, the longtime lottery player plans to indulge herself and do some traveling.
    
She also says "it's a pleasure" being able to financially help her six children, 16 grandchildren and more than 20 great grandchildren.
