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.”
