Some people have all the luck!
Max Bouldin of Trinity, North Carolina said he had good reason to be “shocked” at winning a $1 million jackpot from a scratch-off lottery ticket — he previously won the same amount in 2018.
Bouldin told North Carolina Education Lottery officials he decided to try his luck with a $10 Jumbo Bucks scratch-off ticket from the Trindale Mini Mart in Trinity.
Bouldin said scratching off the $1 million top prize gave him a sense of deja vu, after previously winning $1 million from an Extreme Millions scratch-off ticket in July 2018.
He said the reality of his luck is still setting in. “I feel so blessed,” Bouldin said. “By winning this one here, it is definitely a blessing.”
The winner chose to take his winnings as a $600,000 lump sum, taking home $424,503 after required state and federal tax withholdings.
