Two-time lottery winner Delma Kinney
A man in Atlanta has hauled in a million-dollar lottery payday for the second time in just three years.
Delma Kinney, 50, recently won a $1 million dollar prize playing the instant game Super Millions. In 2008, Kinney also won $1 million playing another instant game.
Kinney is a single father of three, who set aside part of his original lottery winnings to establish a college education fund for his children. Kinney says he plans to donate part of his new winnings to charity.
Just a week shy of his 51st birthday, Kinney says he purchased the winning lottery ticket at a local Chevron Food Mart when he headed out to grab some over-the-counter medications to help him cope with a head cold.
"I was just out and stopped for cold medicine," Mr Kinney told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I sat in the car with the ticket, and when I saw the matching numbers, I knew," he explained.
The odds of Kinney winning the lottery were one in 5,040,000 but there are no exact calculations of the odds for winning a million dollar lottery twice.
