NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- Talk about good luck! A $2 million lottery scratch-off winner from New Jersey has won big again.
Freddie R. of Newark first struck it big with the $2 million prize in July 2017 on the 'Platinum Diamond Spectacular Scratch-Off.' When he claimed this prize, Freddie said he intended to keep playing and winning - and so he did.
Two years later, Freddie won $250,000 playing the 'Crossword' scratch-off game.
He purchased the lucky ticket from C-Town Supermarket in Newark.
Freddie said that even though he had the first-hand experience at winning a big prize before, he still couldn't believe he got lucky again.
He said that he originally planned on retiring but wants to continue working longer so he can retire comfortably.
