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.
