  • Karlee Harbst, 26, purchased the winning ticket at a Circle K in Port Orange.

A pregnant mom got an early Mother’s Day gift when she won a $1 million Florida Lottery prize just days before the holiday.

Karlee Harbst, 26, purchased the winning ticket at a Circle K in Port Orange. The game – called the $5,000,000 Gold Rush Doubler – offered up to six top prizes of $5 million and 30 prizes of $1 million, according to a news release.

Harbst said she played the same scratch-off game the week before – and got lucky then, too.

“When I saw the ticket was number 24, I had to get it,” she said. “[Twenty-four] is my favorite number!”

Her initial instinct made her $100 richer. A week later, Harbst played the game again and claimed a $1 million prize.

Harbst chose to receive the prize as a lump-sum payment of $745,000 dollars, according to the release.
