Kansas lery player Edward Williams (47) this week won a significant amount of money on the lottery - his second major win in a year, reports Earth Times.
Last September, Wichita resident Williams won $75 000 playing a $10 scratch ticket. Then on Wednesday, he defied the odds again when he matched all the numbers in the Super Kansas Cash drawing to win a jackpot worth nearly $900 000.
"When I hit $75 000, I figured lighting struck once, it won't ever hit again," Williams said in a prepared statement released by Kansas Lottery officials. "This one knocked me flat!"
He traveled Friday to Topeka to collect his big win in a single cash lump sum. After taxes are withheld, the jackpot is worth $627 541.
"When I won the $75,000, I bought a car and put the rest of the winnings into a CD," Williams said. "This time, I'm saving it for retirement, which I hope to do at 55."
Williams, who is single and an ex-Marine, said he has been playing Super Kansas Cash, Powerball and other lottery games consistently for 17 years.
In related news, the Italian media are reporting that Saturday's record Superenalotto draw once again did not throw up a winner, so the record jackpot rolls over to Euros 127.5 million.
The magnitude of the jackpot has created lottery madness, boosting ticket sales to unheard of levels as players go after the dream win.
Needed to win are six numbers in a field of 1-to-90 at the next drawing on Tuesday. The jackpot is currently the largest in the world.
On May 10, a Spanish player won Euros 126.2 million in a multiple- country lottery .
Italy's Superenalotto jackpot was last won in January. Its largest to date was Euros 100.7 million in October 2008.
