BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - A woman who won $1 million playing a Pennsylvania Lottery scratch-off ticket earlier this year won another million on the same game Thursday.

Donna Goeppert, 55, of Bethlehem said it was "just unbelievable" after filing her claim Friday at lottery headquarters. "What are the odds of that?" she asked.

The odds of winning just once are 1.44 million-to-1, according to the lottery. Lehigh University engineering professor Bob Storer placed the odds of winning twice after buying 100 tickets at 419 million-to-1.

Goeppert's winning tickets both came in the lottery's $1 Million Blockbuster game. A lottery spokeswoman confirmed that a claim was filed but has not yet been validated and said it typically takes four to six weeks before a check is issued.

Goeppert purchased the most recent winning ticket from Lump's Deli in Bethlehem for $20.

Her win in January allowed her to pay off her mortgage and her children's mortgages, buy a new Cadillac and put away money for her grandchildren's education.

Lottery officials said other winners have experienced lucky streaks. A Carbon County man won four times, collecting over $2.5 million in the late 1980s and '90s; and a husband and wife separately won replica Pocono pace cars in the Pocono Race for the Riches game in 2000.
