The Charlotte Observer reported that Kimberly McCauley won $100,000 this month playing a new instant-scratch off game, 10X the Money.

The North Carolina Education Lottery said that in 2007, McCauley's mother, Amy McCauley, who's from Fort Mill, S.C., won more than $160,000 in the Carolina Cash 5 game.

The family's big win came in 1991, when Amy McCauley won $15.5 million in the New York Lotto.

She also snagged two $1,000 prizes playing the North Carolina lottery's $130 Million Blockbuster game in 2009.

Kimberly McCauley says she thought her mother had all the lottery luck, so she's overwhelmed with the $100,000 win.
