“You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it will happen twice,” said Mark Clark, of South Rockwood, Michigan, after his latest win this month.
“It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling.”
Clark is 50. His good luck story began three years ago.
At the time, he delivered fuel to a gas station in Hudson, Michigan. He bought an instant game lottery ticket and scratched off the bar code. The ticket said to see the clerk – and so he did.
He took his truck back to work, went to his parent’s house to share the news – and soon after, he retired.
Fast forward to this month.
Again Clark bought an instant game ticket – and again, he won. Again, it was $ 4 million.
“We lost him about a year ago after some health struggles, and I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”
He says he’ll go back to his old quiet life. His old quiet life of retirement and fishing, that is.
“My dad and I always used to fish together and have great memories of that, so this will help me keep fishing and enjoy time with my son and family.”
