Man Claims Second International Lottery Jackpot

Who says luck can’t strike twice? For this lucky San Francisco man, he hit the pot of gold twice. The lottery player recently became a multi-millionaire after winning a top international lottery prize in the state of California. This isn’t the only amazing thing to have happened to him, though. In fact, this is his second big lottery win in a little over a year!

The lucky soul in this story is 53-year-old Frank Derfield and he credits his second lucky win as being “dumb luck”. He won $5 million on a scratch card he bought this year in September. This happened 14 months after he won a $100,000 prize from another lucky lottery ticket. What are the chances of that! 

On the 13th of September, Frank bought a few “100X the Money” scratch card tickets at a liquor and groceries store. Another amazing fact about his amazing story is that he experienced his second win at this very same store! He already won $100,000 from the store 14 months ago, so never in his wildest dreams did he ever think of winning again, let alone $5 million!

Let his be an example to all lottery players out there: although Frank thought his chances of winning were slim, he played anyway, and came out victorious! Most players miss out on life-changing sums because they back out of the game when they should be going full throttle. 

After buying his second-time-lucky scratch card, he decided to check the barcode first instead of scratching the ticket to see if he had won. That was when he noticed that he had beat the 1-in-3 million odds of winning a $5 million prize. 

When lottery officials asked Frank what was on his mind after discovering his lottery win, he said, “I just couldn’t believe it. I was in total shock. Disbelief. I definitely defied the odds a lot more this time! I even had to call two friends over to double-check the ticket with me and help calm me down.” 

As one could imagine, the lottery officials were dumbfounded that he had won a second massive lottery prize in the same place in such a short space of time. When they asked him about it, he said, “I wish I can tell you…It’s just stupid luck. It’s weird.” 

The lucky store will receive a $25,000 reward for selling the winning ticket. Frank currently works as a temp in a law office and already used some of last year’s winnings to pay for his own wedding. This time, he wants to use the money to buy themselves a new home. 

“We’re too old to go out and party too much. So we’re going to bank it, go on a trip – maybe get rid of my ’85 Toyota Camry, or maybe a house, but I don’t know. San Francisco, the housing market is crazy here,” he explained. 

Frank Derfield has been playing the California Lottery since 1984 and now that he won such an incredible amount for the second time, he has considered retiring from playing because he is satisfied with the amazing blessing he has been given. “We’re going to have to talk about it…all my luck may be used up at this point!” he chuckled.
