He bought his ticket at the Westland Food Store at 1690 South Venoy road in Westland, and has come forward to pick up his $208,225.
“When I won the first Fantasy 5 jackpot in January 2016, I didn't think I could get any luckier," the player said in a news release. "After I won that jackpot, I started playing a few new sets of numbers and I hadn't really won much, but I stuck it out and I sure am glad I did."
He added: “I really couldn't believe I won again.I haven't slept much at all because I keep thinking about how blessed I am to have won again. It's nice to have this extra cushion and to know that I can move my retirement plans up by a few years.”
As well as saving some of the money to help him in later life, the lucky man is also planning to buy a new home and take a trip in the near future. His success shows that anyone can land great lottery prizes, whether they have have won in the past or are playing for the first time.
