Man wins $2m jackpot months after $2.5k win

A man has won a $2 million jackpot just months after winning $2,500 on the same scratch card game.

The unnamed man from Wayne County, Michigan picked up his favourite Classic Black game - which he stuck with after his previous prize "a few months ago - and he "coudn't believe" his luck.

He told lottery officials: "I said to my wife: 'You're not going to believe this', and showed her the ticket.

"Holding the winning ticket makes me feel like I'm in a dream. I keep pinching myself expecting to wake up and find out this is a dream, but now that I'm holding the cheque it all feels real."

The man will buy a new home and help out his family with the fortune - as well as donating to charities.
