“You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you certainly never think it will happen twice,” said Mark Clark of South Rockwood, Michigan, after his last victory this month.
“It’s hard to put into words exactly how I feel.”
Clark is 50 years old. His story of good fortune begins three years ago.
At the time, he was refueling at a gas station in Hudson, Michigan. Buy a instant lottery ticket ticket and scratch from the line 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 immediately afterwards, retired.
Fast forward this month.
Clark bought another instant game ticket again – again, he won. Again, it was $ 4 million.
“We lost him a year ago after some health races and I can’t help it, but I think maybe this lucky coin helped me win it.”
He says he will return to his old quiet life. His old quiet life for retirement and fishing, that is.
“My dad and I have always fished together and we have great memories of it, so it will help me keep fishing and enjoying time with my son and family.”
