SOUTH ROCKWOOD, Mich. (AP) โ€” How does he do it? For the second time, a southeastern Michigan man has won a $4 million lottery game, officials said Monday.

Mark Clark of South Rockwood scratched a ticket with a coin that was given to him by his late father about 10 years ago. They often fished together after Clark won a different $4 million instant game in 2017.

โ€œYou donโ€™t think youโ€™ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,โ€ Clark, 50, said in a statement released by the Michigan Lottery. โ€œItโ€™s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling. โ€ฆ I canโ€™t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”

Clark chose a lump sum of about $2.5 million instead of taking $4 million in payments over time.

โ€œIโ€™ve had a lot of ups and a lot of downs in my life, but everything is pretty amazing right now,โ€ Clark said.
