Wagswoofs – In an astounding stroke of luck, a resident of New York has managed to win a staggering $10 million lottery prize for the second time in just over a year. Achieving such a remarkable feat is incredibly rare and defies all odds.
According to the Lottery Post, Wayne Murray’s neighbors have mentioned that he has managed to stay out of the spotlight even after winning such a large sum of money.
According to the New York Lottery, Murray has accumulated over $20 million in total winnings, including his most recent jackpot from the 200X scratch-off game this month.
Approximately 15 months ago, the lottery announced that he had won his first prize of $10 million by playing the Black Titanium scratch-off game offered by the New York Lottery.
He purchased both tickets from H&A Gas & Convenience on Avenue H in Brooklyn and has chosen to receive both prizes as lump-sum payments.
The lottery announced that he recently won a prize of $6,122,400 after taxes.
Hassan Nabil, an employee at the convenience store where Murray purchased both winning tickets, expressed his disbelief to the Lottery Post.
In disbelief, he exclaimed, “It’s incredible! To have it happen twice in a row, it’s beyond comprehension.”
The New York Lottery states that the chances of winning the jackpot in the 200X scratch-off game are approximately 1 in 3.5 million, while the odds of winning the Black Titanium are about 1 in 3.6 million.
The chances of winning both jackpots in a row are approximately 1 in 12 trillion. However, if Murray had purchased more tickets and played more frequently, the odds would have been higher.
Nabil revealed that despite the substantial amount of money, Murray has not been extravagant or showy in his spending.
According to the Lottery Post, he mentioned, “After winning the first time, he had the option to leave the neighborhood but chose to stay. Many people are affected by money, but he doesn’t flaunt his wealth. He remains genuine and true to himself.”
According to an unnamed neighbor, she had no knowledge that he had won the lottery not once, but twice. She expressed her surprise to the Lottery Post.
According to her, Murray has been residing in a three-story apartment in East Flatbush, Brooklyn for several decades.
According to the neighbor, they were completely unaware of the situation. They mentioned that the person in question is quite modest and humble. The neighbor even expressed their intention to personally congratulate the individual when they have the chance to meet them again.
She said, “His house will always be his, even if he won the lottery a third time. He looked after his mother and great-aunt in that house until they both passed away. Family, home, and neighborhood mean everything to him.”
Murray did not immediately respond to our request for comment, but when asked by the Lottery Post, he said, “Some of us simply prefer to maintain our privacy. I personally value discretion, that’s all.”
