One man in Orlando, Fla., hasn’t just got Lady Luck, he has her twin sister as well.
James Bozeman Jr., 67, managed to hit the Florida Lotto not once, but twice, for a total of $13 million in winnings. Both times were at the same 7-Eleven in Edgewood, Fla..
“We’re the only convenience store in the state of Florida that sold two winning lotto tickets since the inception of the Florida Lotto,” said Jim Hemani, the owner of the store.
The lottery said today that Bozeman won $3 million on August 31, which he chose to receive in annual payments of $100,000 over the next 30 years. Last year, he beat odds of 1 in 22,957,480 to win $10 million in the lottery, which he received as a one-time payment.
Bozeman told the Florida Lotto that he used two different sets of numbers to win the two jackpots. And he is working on his next set of numbers in hopes of winning again.
