    A man wins the lottery four times in nine years.

    Some people have incredible luck. Take one man from Woodbridge, Virginia, named Melvyn Wilson. Get ready for this, he has won the lottery four times over the course of 9 years.

    In 2004, he landed $25,000. Fast forward a year and Wilson was taking home $1 million from a scratch off game. And again in 2005, he won an additional $500,000.

    Then, there was a halt in Wilson’s lucky streak, up until recently when he played the Millionaire Mania scratch-off game. The end result… he’s now a $500,000 winner.

    In total, he has taken in $2,025,000 from lottery winnings. Wilson, who is postal service retiree stated “I’m just in the right place at the right time.”

    Last year, an Arlington man won the lottery twice over the course of 3 months. Joseph Sylvester bought a new truck and paid off some of his bills with the first 100 thousand dollar pay off in April, and planned to pay more debts with the second hundred grand that he won in the July third Cash 5 drawing.
