An Alabama woman kicked off 2014 with good fortune, literally, by winning two $90,000 jackpots in two days.
Charlotte Moncrief, of Anniston, Ala., won her first $90,000 New Year’s Day on the Triple Diamond slot machine at the Pearl River Resort in Choctaw, Miss.
The next day, Jan. 2, Moncrief returned again to the resort’s Silver Star Hotel & Casino and tried her luck once more at one of its 2,400 slot machines. She chose a different Triple Diamond-themed machine but walked away with the same result, a $90,000 win.
“It was awesome and I was completely shocked,” Moncrief said in a statement released by the resort. “Until you hit a big jackpot like this, you never know how it is.”
“I certainly never thought it would be me,” said Moncrief, who could not be reached today by ABCNews.com.
The resort on New Year’s Day offered a buffet that included black-eyed peas and collard greens, two foods thought to bring good luck into the New Year.
Moncrief told Pearl River Resorts’ officials she plans to return to play more slots and is considering buying a new car with her winnings.
