Delma Kinney, Atlanta Man, Wins $1 Million Lottery for Second Time in Three Years

The rich, as they say, get richer.

Delma Kinney, a 50-year-old Atlanta man, has won a $1 million instant lottery prize for the second time in three years.

He previously won a million bucks playing a similar instant game in 2008.

Kinney, a single father of three, says he will use some of his winnings to fund his children’s college educations. He will also donate a chunk to charity.

“I was just out and stopped for cold medicine,” Kinney told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I sat in the car with the ticket, and when I saw the matching numbers, I knew.”

I bet he’s feeling a lot better now.

This kind of thing, although rare, does happen. In 2009, 29-year-old Phillip Brunelle of Fall River, Mass. won $1,000 from a scratch-off ticket purchased at a local convenience store. He decided to press his luck and bought $20 in additional tickets. Lo and behold, he won another $1 million.

Incredibly, Joan Ginther won four Texas Lottery jackpots totaling a whopping $21 million. Odds? How about one in 18 septillion– that’s 1 in 18,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
