Sept. 9 (UPI) -- A North Carolina man had his third brush with lottery luck when he scored a $100,000 jackpot after previously winning $1 million -- twice.

Terry Splawn, of Concord, told North Carolina Education Lottery officials he was visiting Sam's Mini Stop in Concord on Monday when he bought the $20 Premiere Cash scratch-off ticket that earned him a $100,000 prize.

"It was on Labor Day," Splawn said. "So, it was a really nice surprise for the day."

Splawn first visited lottery headquarters in April 2017, when he won $1 million from a Millionaire Bucks ticket. He returned two years later, in March 2019, to collect a second $1 million prize from an $150 Million Cash Explosion scratch-off ticket.

All three of Splawn's big wins came from tickets purchased from the same store.

"It's unbelievable," he said. "It certainly is fun to win."
