Retired postal worker Melvyn Wilson (pictured) is probably one of the luckiest men on earth, because on Wednesday, he picked up his fourth winning lottery check, and this time, it was for a whopping $500,000, reports The Washington Times.
The Woodbridge, Va., resident, who has won more than $2 million, first hit the lotto jackpot back in 2004, when a scratch card fetched him $25,000.
Just one year later, Wilson struck it rich, yet again!
Two more lottery scratch cards resulted in Wilson receiving a $1 million win on one and a $500,000 prize on the other.
Two years after his last lotto windfall, Wilson decided to call it quits at the post office.
Now nearly eight years since his last big win, Wilson remains cool as a cucumber and almost appears unfazed by the excitement that a fourth win should generate. Wilson told lottery officials as he claimed his check for $500,000, “‘I’m just in the right place at the right time.”
Watch Wilson’s story here:
The 72-year-old retiree admits that he is “in it to win it’ and plans on continuing to play the lottery. Wilson believes he has a chance at winning Thursday’s Powerball, which is now at a jackpot of $360 million.
The record high for a jackpot is $656 million.
