A 9-year-old girl is on an amazing – and profitable – winning streak. First, she won a McLaren Coupe car valued at over $261,000, then she won $1 million in a Dubai lottery Tuesday. Both prizes were clinched in the same competition, The Daily Mail reported.

The lucky winner, identified as Eliza.M. by the Khaleej Times, claimed her prize after her ticket was selected at a drawing at Dubai's International Airport. It was her father, identified as Mr. M, who purchased the winning ticket online under his daughter's name, his lucky charm who won the Coupe in 2013. Eliza's father has been buying lotto tickets since 2004.

The excited father said he had been dreaming about how he would spend the winning money for years.

"I have been making plans, [but] I said to myself to continue my life as it is, and then this thing happened today," he said. "Finally, my perseverance has paid off."

A little closer to home, Jonathan Vargas of South Carolina is one of the youngest Powerball winners. The 19-year-old won the $35.3 million Powerball jackpot back in May 2008 while in 2016 Frederick Walker, a 19-year-old from Florida, walked away with $2 million.
