article imageIndianapolis man wins $1 million lottery for 2nd time in 3 months

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Jul 31, 2014 in Odd News
Indianapolis - In an unbelievable stroke of luck, a man managed to capture the $1 million prize again by playing a scratch lotto ticket. His previous win occurred back in April while he was traveling in to a different part of the state for a conference.
According to the Huffington Post, Hoosier Lottery officials have stated that the identity of the man is that of Robert Hamilton.
Hamilton was playing a game known as the $120 Million Cash Spectacular. Experts believe the chances of winning a $1 million cash prize on that scratch game are 1 in 2 million.
CBS News reports that Hamilton used the first $1 million he won to pay off bills, purchase a home and go on a vacation. He also used part of the money to buy a new truck for his father.
Hamilton, who runs his own business, claims that he has no plans to stop working. In fact, he says he will use part of his recent earnings to purchase equipment to help grow his business. He also plans to buy a motorcycle for himself.
His wife, Donna Hamilton, stated that she doesn't expect their lives to change too much after their winnings. She was quoted as saying:
"We're just everyday, normal people."
This isn't the first time a person has gotten lucky twice off the lottery. According to the Lottery Post, a Virginia man won $1 million and then won $2 million just seven weeks later. A man in Washington won $200,000 on a scratch lotto ticket less than four years after receiving a $50,000 cash prize on another game, according to the Spokesman Review.
