MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Two Surfside women are richer after scratching winning tickets, twice in one week.

Sister-in-laws Karen Martin and Teri D'angelo won and split $500 on Saturday but had even better luck the following Wednesday.

The two tried their hand at a $2 Lucky Shamrock game and got lucky all right. The women pocketed $20,000.

The pair followed their normal routine, D'angelo chose the ticket for Martin to scratch. After winning, they decided to skip lunch and head for Columbia to cash in the winning ticket.

I had a feeling we were going to hit it," said D'Angelo.

They said their first splurge will be taking the family out to dinner to celebrate the win.

"I haven't eaten since breakfast," said Martin.
