Winner, winner, chicken dinner... And dessert!

2014 has already been very prosperous for Charlotte Moncrief, an Anniston, Ala., resident who won two back-to-back slot jackpots at Pearl River Silver Star Hotel in Choctaw, Miss., last week. At $90,000 each, Moncrief is already $180,000 richer (before taxes) just days into the new year.

"I certainly never thought it would be me," she said in a release, according to ABC.

"There was a lot of jackpots going off, so I just decided to put $100 in a $100 machine," Montcrief, who won the first jackpot on New Year's Day, told the Clarion-Ledger. "The first pull, I got $90,000. Isn't that good?"

The next day, she returned to the casino and played the same game at a slot machine near the first.. and won the same prize.

"You know, I hollered the first one," she told the Ledger. "The second one, I think my mouth just fell open."

Moncrief says she's not sure what she'll do with the winnings, but a new car may be on the horizon. No matter what she chooses, we have a feeling it's going to be a very happy new year.
