One man from Colorado, USA, seems to have not run out on luck as he bagged winnings in his local lottery—for the third time.

Colorado Springs native Paul G. hit the jackpot over the course of 18 months, amounting to $1 million (almost P54 million) in total. He first won $250,00o (almost P13.5 million) in March 2017, while his second and third wins were only two weeks apart—$500,000 (almost P27 million) on Aug. 14 and another $250,000 on Aug. 28.

The 65-year-old prefers to play the 2nd Chance Drawing in the Colorado lottery. “If you’re not playing 2nd Chance, you’re missing out,” he said.  “It cuts your odds of winning the top prize by about half.”

He said he plans to spend his earnings by taking a vacation in Rome, Italy, and a cruise to Aruba with his wife, Terri. He also gave their four children a chunk of his prize.

As he is already considered “the luckiest man in Colorado,” does he still plan to continue playing the game? He immediately said: “Of course!”  /ra
