A man won $  100,000 in the lottery two weeks after winning $  5,000

A North Carolina man who won $ 5,000 with a scratch-off lottery ticket said he was “extremely happy and surprised” to learn he’d won another $ 100,000 just two weeks later.

Henry Harvey II, a store manager from Spring Lake, won the second prize after buying a $ 25 Extreme Cash ticket. He bought it from the same Circle K store where he bought the $ 5,000-winning ticket two weeks earlier for $ 10.
“It was a shock,” Harvey told lottery officials. “Still is!”
      Harvey took home $ 70,757 after federal and state taxes. He said he planned to “stick it in the bank.”
        Winning the lottery twice happens more often than you might think.
          Last month, a man from Littleton, North Carolina, won a million-dollar prize for a second time within the past year. Earlier this year, a woman in Idaho won a $ 300,000 lottery prize, then a $ 200,000 prize the next day.
