Man wins Lotto jackpot, again

A man has won a multimillion-dollar jackpot a the second time

A US man who won a multimillion-dollar jackpot playing the Florida Lotto has done it again.

The Florida Lottery said 67-year-old James Bozeman has claimed a three million dollar jackpot from the drawing held on August 31.

Last year, Mr Bozeman claimed a 10 million dollar jackpot.

He purchased both winning tickets from the same convenience store.

Mr Bozeman said he started using a different set of numbers since the last time he won and is looking forward to picking a third lucky set for the next draw.

He has chosen to receive his latest winning in annual payments of 100,000 dollars for the next 30 years.
