INDIANAPOLIS, July 31 (UPI) -- An Indiana man wasn't satisfied with winning $1 million on a lottery scratch-off, so he went back and did it again.

Robert Hamilton won $1 million on the "$120 Million Cash Spectacular Scratch-Off" game about three months ago and he claimed his second prize on July 22.

Hamilton must have a four-leaf clover or something, because the odds of winning just once are one in more than two million.

"It's the icing on the cake," Hamilton said in a Hoosier Lottery release after claiming his second million.

Although Hamilton was responsible with his winnings the first time around, the second payday will result in a little more fun.

"After he won the first time I told him he could buy a motorcycle if he hit it again," said Hamilton's wife, Donna.

The Hamiltons don't plan on letting their good fortune go to their heads.

"We're just everyday, normal people," Donna said.
