June 2 (UPI) -- A Michigan man is on a lucky streak after collecting two Michigan Lottery jackpots within a single month, for a total of more than $1.3 million.

The player's lucky streak continued May 13, when he was again at Main Street Pub.

"I was at the bar and my friend told me I should buy a Fast Cash ticket since the jackpot was high and 'someone was bound to win it soon,'" the player said. "I decided to purchase a few and looked them over right away."

The man noticed one of his tickets, a Jumbo Jackpot Slots Fast Cash ticket, had matching symbols.

"When I saw the three jackpot symbols on the same row, I immediately got out my phone to scan the ticket on the Lottery app. When I saw the amount come up on the screen, I turned to my friend and said: 'You're not going to believe this!' I was speechless," he recalled.
