A man from New Jersey, United States bagged over $5 million from his local lottery when he won it three times in just one day.

Retired union pile driver Robert Stewart told New Jersey lottery officials on Friday, Nov. 2 that he bought scratch-off tickets from his local retailer. He then scratched them all, one of them bearing the winning numbers that made him win $5 million (almost P264 million).

Stewart then had the store clerk to tell its owner that he won the prize, for which he was given a hug. Feeling his luck on a high, Stewart bought two more tickets, out of which he won $500 (almost P26,400) and $100 (almost P5,280).

Actually, this was not the first time that Stewart was hit with luck. He previously won $2,500 (almost P132,000), which he considers as his biggest win prior to his current winnings.
