  • A man in Virginia who won a $2.5 million lottery prize in 2014 just did it again, winning $1 million from a scratch-off ticket.
  • He says he will be using his latest winnings to make some investments and take care of his kids.
  • More ridiculous lottery news here.

Another day, another person who just hit a huge jackpot playing the lottery after already hitting a huge jackpot playing the lottery.

Today’s most annoying person in the world is Michael Worsham of Chesapeake, Virginia.

Back in December of 2014, Worsham collected a $2.5 million lottery jackpot playing a lottery scratch-off ticket.

Last week, Worsham collected an additional $1 million from the Virginia Lottery after winning a second time playing a scratch-off ticket.

“I thought maybe I’d won a hundred dollars,” Worsham told Virginia Lottery officials when he redeemed his winning ticket. “I looked at it again and said, ‘This is a million!’”

This time his windfall came via a Extreme Millions scratcher which features prizes ranging from $30 to $10 million, including the $1 million second prize that Worsham snagged.

According to the Virginia Lottery, Mr. Worsham had the choice of taking the full $1 million spread out over 30 years or… a one-time cash option of $657,030 before taxes. He chose the cash option.

Annoying, right? It could have been worse.

Just a few weeks ago, John Hammill of Braintree, Massachusetts won his second giant lottery prize in 15 years.

The odds of him winning the first one, worth $1 million, was 1-in-2,016,000. The odds of him winning his second jackpot, worth $15 million, was 1-in-5,376,000.

Somehow, he won both.

And the name of the scratch-off game he played when he won the second time around? The Massachusetts Millionaires’ Club instant ticket game.

We can’t make this stuff up, folks.
