Man wins USD4M lottery scratch card game, again

SOUTH ROCKWOOD, Michigan (AP) — How does he do it? For the second time, a southeastern Michigan man has won a USD4 million lottery game, officials said on 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 USD4 million instant game in 2017.

“You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,” Clark, 50, said in a statement released by the

Michigan Lottery. “It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling. … I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”

Clark chose a lump sum of about USD2.5 million instead of taking USD4 million in payments

over time. “I’ve had a lot of ups and a lot of downs in my life, but everything is pretty amazing right now,” Clark said.
