ONE MAN has revealed how he won the lottery THREE times in just one day – and the results may surprise you.
In 2018, Mark Maltz won the jackpot prize of more than $325,000 after purchasing multiple tickets at a local gas station.
The Tow Company employee first treated himself to a scratch card while filling up his truck in Oakland County, Michigan.
And after winning $10, he decided it was worth a punt again, this time winning $15 on a separate Fast Cash ticket.
However, after purchasing a third and fourth ticket using his previous winnings, the man was stunned by what happened next.
“I was starting to freak out,” the trucker told Michigan Lotto at the time.
Buoyed by his first two wins, Mark announced that he had bought another $5 Fast Cash Blackjack ticket and a $10 Jackpot Slots Fast Cash ticket.
Unknowingly, one of them contained the state lottery jackpot prize of $325,184.
“The rest of the story,” he later quipped to lottery officials.
He added, “I’m going to sit on it for a while and decide how best to invest it and make it last.”
While Mark’s story is particularly contradictory, another lucky player previously revealed how he won the lottery for the fourth time in his life.
In January, Mike “Lucky” Luciano revealed his latest big haul – bringing his total winnings to $4.6 million.
Amazingly, the recent win, worth more than $1 million, was the third big cash prize he had won in the past six years.
However, he struggled to put his finger on how he had managed it.
“I don’t know why I’ve been so blessed and won big three times in my life,” Luciano told the Altoona Mirror in 2021.
“Most people are just looking for a win – and I know that’s incredible.”
“But I’m convinced nobody wins as often without playing more than they should,” added Luciano. “I’m addicted to it.”
Elsewhere, a woman has previously explained how her unique tactic helped her claim more than £150,000 in winnings.
In 2019, Deborah Brown of Richmond, Virginia claimed she won a £3,800 jackpot with 30 separate lottery tickets using the same numbers.
She has a 1 in 10,000 chance of each one — a result that “almost gave her a heart attack” at the time, she said.
