Lottery winners who won lottery jackpots twice

Lottery winners who won lottery jackpots twice

While some poeple haven’t won the lottery at all for once no matter how long they have been playing, some players have won more than once.

And this isn’t about knowing what or how to predict, as the lottery numbers are completely random, it is simply about luck.

Juan Hernandez of Uniondale, in Nassau County, New York hit a $10 million payout in February – after previously winning the exact same prize value in 2019. Talk about beating the odds!

In fact, Hernandez has said he’s “still trying to spend the $10 million” he won three years ago. Now that’s a problem anyone would surely like to have.

His first win was on the $350,000,000 Cash Spectacular scratch-off game.

He chose to take his latest prize as a single lump sum payout of $6,510,000 after tax withholdings.

The chances of winning the Deluxe game’s top prize are 1 in 3,521,600. So imagine how incredibly much higher the odds are of winning twice.

In August 2021, a South Carolina man hit a $3 million prize only 11 days after he took home a $40,000 payout.

And in October, a retired utility worker from Maryland won a $2 million lottery prize for the second time.

Thomas Perretta has beaten some pretty steep odds. The Stamford, Connecticut resident won $30,000 in March 2020 on a 30X Cash scratch ticket from the same store where he bought another $30,000 winning ticket for the same game four years ago!

Perretta said he purchased the ticket since the game had been lucky for him in the past.

“I bought this 30X ticket at the same store four years ago and I won,” he said. “The first time the prize helped me pay some bills. This time, it’s going towards a new kitchen remodel.”

Another winner from March 2020, an anonymous Maryland man claimed a $50,000 scratch-off jackpot – his second big lottery win in just a year.

The 45-year-old from Pasadena in Anne Arundel County purchased a $30 Rose Gold Black scratch-off ticket at the St. Paul Mini Mart in Baltimore on his way home from work.

He scratched the ticket while sitting in his vehicle and scanned it using the Lottery’s app. He was thrilled to confirm he’d hit the game’s jackpot.

The big win came just a year after he won a large prize on a different scratch game. He put the first win towards buying a house, and like Perretta, he’s planning a home renovation with his second win.

“I called my wife on the phone and told her that our projects were paid for,” the Maryland winner said.

Linda Tate of Durham, North Carolina is unquestionably a very lucky lady – in January 2020, she won a $1 million prize on the $10,000,000 Colossal Cash scratch-off game.

But Tate’s lucky streak actually started when she enjoyed a $4 million win on the Millionaire Bucks game back in August 2018.

In May 2019, Peggy Dodson of Pennsylvania hit the $1 million jackpot on the Max-a-Million scratch game.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, it was the 72-year-old’s second big win in a short time – she won $100,000 on another scratch-off ticket from the same convenience store two years before.

Vineland, New Jersey resident Eugene Martellio was the lucky winner of a $3 million top prize on the CA$H OUT scratch-off game in April 2019.

His big win came just two years after he won over $730,000 on a Jersey Cash 5 ticket.

And Martellio said he’s not done yet – he said he hoped to win again, maybe on Powerball or Mega Millions.

Concord, North Carolina man Terry Splawn won $1 million twice – at the same store – in less than two years.

Splawn won his most recent $1 million prize in March 2019 with a $150 Million Cash Explosion instant win ticket purchased from Sam’s Mini Stop in Concord. The odds of winning the $1 million prize in that game were 1 in 1.8 million.

Splawn’s first million dollar win was in April 2017 after he bought a Millionaire Bucks scratch-off ticket at the same retailer. The odds of winning $1 million in that game were 1 in 1.248 million.

Framingham man Howard Rankin won a $1 million instant jackpot on the $2,500,000 Holiday Bonus game in November 2015.

In September 2016, a ticket from the same store netted him an additional $1 million scratch-off win!

There are many more of such examples. However, don’t getyourself addicted to the game. When it’s no longer fun, QUIT!
