A LUCKY lottery player won two prizes in five weeks and managed to quintuple his winnings.
Delaware’s Duane Ketterman won $30,785 buying a Racetrax ticket in Baltimore, Maryland.
The technician won the whopping amount after deciding to add a bonus multiplier number – which increased his winnings by 5x.
His big win came after bagging $18,000 playing the same game in July.
Ketterman told the Maryland Lottery, “I couldn’t believe I won the first time. When I saw this one, I was just stunned.”
He revealed his wife was surprised when he told her about his big win.
Ketterman said he and his wife have no immediate plans to spend the money.
He said, “Something is going to come, good or bad, and we have to deal with it.”
Meanwhile, we revealed how a truck driver known as the Annapolis Man bagged two huge jackpots after accidentally buying two tickets with the same numbers.
The 39-year-old won a total of $50,000 in the Pick 5 evening draw on June 18 and used his date of birth 72782 as inspiration for his numbers.
A 51-year-old woman won two prizes worth $30,946 in just a few months after winning twice big on horse racing game Racetrax.
She won her first jackpot in May and her second grand prize in July.
She told the Maryland Lottery that she had a feeling before placing the second bet.
The player, whose name was not released, revealed that the cashier initially received her numbers in the wrong order when she first bought the ticket.
She was stunned when the seller told her she had won.
She said: “I didn’t see the races so when he called out. I was shocked. Another $30,946?”
The woman admitted she was jumping up and down in front of celebrations.
Robert Hamilton from Indianapolis, Indiana won $1 million twice in just three months.
He took home his first prize in April after winning the $120 million Hoosier Lottery scratch card Cash Spectacular.
Lottery officials said the odds of Hamilton winning the $1 million grand prize are about one in two million, reports CBS.
Months later, Hamilton defied the odds again and scooped another $1 million prize.
Lottery players have shared their tips on how players can improve their chances of winning.
A TikToker was inspired by the works of Helen Hadsell, who was known as the “competition queen”.
In “The Name It & Claim It Game,” Hadsell said she would choose numbers that had “personal significance.”
This includes dates of birth and house numbers.
Hadsell said she will “stick with the same numbers and keep energizing them.”
And lottery expert Richard Wheeler believes players can improve their odds by picking big numbers.
