KALISPELL – Winning the lottery once is exciting, but one Kalispell woman won it twice in one day.

Cheyenne Long is $77,000 richer after buying and winning on a couple Power Play Gold Crossword Montana Lottery scratch tickets.

Long purchased her first ticket at Michael’s East in Evergreen July 1. She won $2,000. Later she said she had a gut feeling and bought another ticket — and won again.

This time she won top prize of $75,000 on another Power Play Gold Crossword ticket she bought at the Holiday station in Havre

Long says she plans to pay off her bills with her lottery winnings.
