Lightning has struck twice for a Chicago man who for the second time in less than a decade won a $1 million lottery jackpot.
“I won $1 million about nine years ago from the Merry Millionaire game,” Scott Anetsberger said in a statement touting his latest windfall.
“He plans on using his winnings to pay bills and send his two younger children to college,” Lottery officials said.
Anetsberger bought the winning ticket, a $20 scratch-off play, 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.
