A FORMER lottery winner has scored $2million after making $1million off of a prior ticket.
The man from North Carolina plans to spend his winnings on his wife like he did the first time around.
Pharris Frank, 41, from Advance purchased his second winning lotto ticket out of town while on a construction job.
The Diamond Dazzler scratchcard from the Handy House store in Morehead City won him $2million.
Back in July 2021, Frank scored his first million dollars off a ticket he bought at a local store in his hometown.
“It’s cool because the first time I won it was two miles from my house and this time I was four-and-a-half hours away,” Frank told The Mirror.
The jackpot winner added: “What are the chances of me being down there at that exact moment in time?
“It’s crazy because the day before I won, my buddy was asking me how it felt to win $1million.
“I told him that I was going to double it.”
Frank used this money to pay for his dream wedding with his now-wife.
After winning his second lotto, “I called my wife and told her ‘I did it again'” Frank said.
He plans to use his new winnings on a vacation for his wife.
Frank said he was surprised when he learned that he had won the jackpot again.
“I didn’t know if I was dreaming or not,” he said.
Frank added: “I was just in shock for a while.”
