A US woman has won a $1m (€759,190) lottery prize twice in one day.
Virginia Fike is "in shock" after she bought two Powerball tickets and matched five out of six numbers on both tickets, winning a total of $2m (€1.51m).
She said in a statement: "I'm in shock. I picked numbers based on my parents' anniversary and their ages at that time, divided by the year they were married. I just love the jackpot games and I play when I can afford it.
"I saw a scroll on TV about there being two $1m winners. I looked at my mum and said: 'Wouldn't it be funny if it was us?' "
Virginia is going to use some of the winnings to take care of her parents.
