Lottery ticket blurb

A man recently collected $500,000 in the Virginia Lottery's Millionaire Mania scratch-off game. This wouldn't be that unusual except that it was the fourth time the same man has won the lottery, not by playing giant-jackpot Mega Millions or Powerball games, but through simple scratch-off games.

In addition to his recent winnings, Melvyn Wilson, of Woodbridge, Va., won $1 million in a scratch-off game in 2005, the same year he also won $500,000. In 2004, he won $25,000. He's now won a total of $2,025,000 in lottery winnings.

Wilson has earned the nickname "Mr. Lucky" and attributes his winnings to being in the right place at the right time.

The odds of winning the lottery extremely rare, as seen in here:
