JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Just call him extra lucky.
Munib Garvanovic, 56, of Jacksonville won a $5 million top prize in a Florida Lottery scratch-off game three years after winning $1 million in another lottery game, lottery officials announced this week.
And he bought both tickets at the same gas station.
The big prize came from the 200X the Cash game. Garvanovic chose to receive a one-time, lump-sum payment of $4,450,000, the Florida Times-Union reported. Earlier, he had claimed a $1 million prize from the $5,000,000 Gold Rush Doubler game.
He bought the $20 ticket at a Gate gas station in Jacksonville. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket, lottery officials said.
“Every November I play my favorite scratch-off games because I feel it brings me extra luck,” he said.
