FLORISSANT, Mo. -- November 29 was Veronica Buchanan's lucky day.

That morning she won $1,000 from a $10 Monopoly scratch-off ticket she bought at the Bellefontaine BP gas station.

Then she went back later in the day to try her luck again. She bought another $10 scratch-off ticket-- a $1,000,000 Fortune-- and won herself a small fortune. Her ticket was worth $100,000.

This isn't the first time someone has won two big prizes in one day. Earlier in November, a North Carolina woman won $1,010,000 between two lottery prizes in a single day.
