Illinois Man Wins Lottery - Again

Another winner for Scott Anetsberger (Illinois Lottery)

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.
