There’s being lucky in life, then there’s this guy.
Pharris Frank, 41, of Advance, North Carolina might just be the luckiest human being in the world.
Back in July of 2021, Frank won a $1 million jackpot from a scratch-off ticket. Being quite the optimist, he told North Carolina Education Lottery officials that, even after winning a million bucks he had a feeling another big win was still in his future.
Turns out, he was right because he recently won another $2 million playing a $20 scratch-off.
“I called my wife and told her, ‘I did it again,’” Frank said.
“It’s cool because the first time I won it was two miles from my house and this time I was four and a half hours away,” Frank added. “What are the chances of me being down there at that exact moment in time?”
Frank also said that he even predicted it.
“It’s crazy because the day before I won, my buddy was asking me how it felt to win $1 million,” he said. “And I told him that I was going to double it.”
Calling it crazy is a massive understatement.

Then again, back in January a woman from Shelby, North Carolina – also 41-years-old like Pharris Frank – won $2 million playing a scratch-off lottery ticket just two months after winning a $1 million prize playing a different scratch-off lottery game.
“I was like, ‘No way this happened again,’” Kenya Sloan told North Carolina Education Lottery officials after winning again. “But it did.”

Meanwhile, over in Maryland, a Prince George’s County man who celebrated his 63rd birthday in March won lottery jackpots worth $25,696 and $100,000 just one week apart.
“I was doing what I do every day,” he told Maryland Lottery officials about the day he won $100,000. “I take a morning stroll to the store, and there I play Racetrax, Keno and scratch-off games.”
Some people really do have all the luck.
