He had won $10,000 in a drawing earlier this year and $20,000 in 2020.

"With as many folks who are entering drawings, to actually win one is hard to comprehend," Hensley said. "So, to actually win three, it's mind boggling."

Hensley was so surprised by the third win that he couldn't speak.

"I had to hold on to something I was so stunned," Hensley said.

He handed the phone to his wife so she could see that he won the prize.

Hensley said he would like to use his winnings to buy a new truck and do some home repairs.

Recently, a North Carolina resident went on a dessert run that resulted in her winning $100,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
