MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - With the South Carolina Education Lottery, luck sometimes rolls around more than once.

At least that's the case for Myrtle Beach businesswoman Nina Kaur who won $200,000 for the second time.

As the owner of Diamond Cab, Kaur bought a scratch-off lottery ticket last November that won her $200,000 that she used to start Diamond Med Transport, a service to carry patients to hospitals and doctors appointments in the Grand Strand.

And exactly a year later luck strikes again. This time Nina plans to once again invest the lottery winnings in her business and 50 employees after she divides the winnings with Diamond Cab's Manager Kenny Singh.

"This is too much," she said describing how it feels to win $200,000 not once, but twice in 12 months.

"She's lucky," says Nina's husband Robbie, who isn't surprised she won twice.

With the winnings, Diamond Med Transport can now afford to buy more cars and hire more drivers.

"We are bringing more jobs to the community," said Robbie. "We are proud of what we have been able to do."

Al's Food Mart on Hwy. 15 sold both winning tickets to Nina and will receive a $2,000 commission for selling her the last top prize winning ticket in the Go for the Gold game. The odds of winning $200,000 were 1 in 576,000.
