JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – If at first you don't succeed, try again.

That's a motto that really paid off for one Region 8 woman.

When she didn't win with the "Bucks and Ducks" scratch-off lottery ticket she bought at the Stop N' Go #201 in Jonesboro, Karen Robinson didn't trash it.

Instead, the Trumann resident visited the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery's website and entered the card number in the "Play It Again Second Chance Drawing."

It's a good thing she did.

What had been a worthless piece of paper won her $25,000 when the number was drawn.

Robinson collected her winnings on Friday.  No word on how she plans to spend it.
