The woman said she was 'still feeling lucky' and decided to play again.

A 23-year-old Maryland woman had a stroke of luck not once but twice in a single day when she went on to win $12,000 and $16,000 in two major jackpots.

The woman from Mechanicsville told Maryland Lottery officials that she won on the first Keno ticket at breakfast while her other major winnings came during dinner with husband. "My business partner accidentally got a 10-spot Keno ticket. He almost threw it away and I encouraged him to play it. I told him there are no accidents! We play what we get," UPI quoted the woman as saying.

The first ticket carried a prize of $12,000 which the woman and her business partner decided to share. However the woman said she was 'still feeling lucky' and decided to play Keno again. She hit the $16,000 jackpot.

Revealing plans to spend the winnings, the woman said she will use some money to buy Ariana Grande tickets for a friend's daughters while with the remaining amount she will buy septic tank truck for a business venture.
