Playing How to Increase the Odds of Winning the Lottery

A Montana woman is thanking her lucky stars after winning the lottery twice in one day. 

Cheyenne Long of Kalispell bought a Power Play Gold Crossword on July 1 and won $2,000, according to the Flathead Beacon. But she had a "gut feeling" and decided to purchase three more tickets. 

The move paid off: She nabbed $75,000, the highest prize possible.

“It was a super genuine and blissful moment," Long told lottery officials.

She will ultimately take home about $53,000, according to a lottery press release. 

Long said she plans to pay her bills with the prize money.
