We’re sure Lena Eaton (pictured) did the Gangnam Style dance as she strutted her 91-year-old self down to the Indiana state lottery office twice in less than three months to pick up two big checks, the Daily News reports.

On of the checks, which was awarded in August, was for $300,000 and the other, handed out on Nov. 1, was for $99,000.

Eaton, a mother of six, grandmother of 16 and great-grandma of 20, won her first big Hoosier lottery on Aug. 10 from a Quick Draw. She then tried her luck again and, on Nov. 1, the nonagenarian was stupefied when a $5 scratch-off ticket resulted in yet another big pot.

Eaton has certainly defied the odds: she had a 1 in more than 8.9 million chance of winning in August, and a one in more than 646,000 chance of winning last week’s prize.  The odds for winning both pots were beyond astronomical for Eaton at 1 in 57 trillion.

After years of playing the lottery, Eaton is beyond ecstatic at her big wins. She has already used some of winnings to purchase new windows and add a bathroom to her home.

Eaton also wants to do some traveling and indulge herself a little. Most of all, she wants to help out her family when they need it. “It’s been a pleasure being able to help them,” the longtime lottery player said. “I’ve got good kids,” she told the Daily News.
