(CHICAGO) -- Lightning struck twice for a Chicago man who has won a second $1 million lottery in the past 10 years.
“I won $1 million about nine years ago from the Merry Millionaire game,” Scott Anetsberger said in a statement touting his second windfall.
“He plans on using his winnings to pay bills and send his two younger children to college,” Lottery officials said.
Merry Millionaire is a $20 scratch-off game.
Anetsberger bought the winning ticket at the J&P Food store in Villa Park, Chicago.
“He’s a regular at our store and we’re happy that he won,” the store manager told Illinois Lottery.
J&P gets a $6,000 cut from the winnings, about one percent of what Anetsberger will collect after taxes. He received his ceremonial check Tuesday.
