Man wins scratch lottery twice in 20 days

BEAUFORT, S.C., Aug. 2 (UPI) -- A Beaufort, S.C., man who used to live on a street called Lottery Lane has won a second major prize from scratch-off lottery tickets in 20 days.

Harold Gray, a self-employed contractor, buys one scratch ticket every day, and last month, won $250,000.

Tuesday, his wife's 39th birthday, he bought a ticket worth $100,000, the Beaufort Gazette reported.

"I had to go home and take a little medication to calm me down," Gray said. "I feel like I have a horseshoe stuck up my behind."

He and his wife had already booked a cruise to the Bahamas later this month after their first win, but neither said they would quit their jobs.

Gray said he would pay off his bills, buy a house and invest the rest for retirement.
