“It’s unbelievable,” he said. “It certainly is fun to win.”

Splawn’s good luck first struck back in April 2017 when he bought a Millionaire Bucks ticket from Sam’s Mini Stop on Old Charlotte Road in Concord and won $1 million.

Two years later, in March 2019, he bought a $150 Million Cash Explosion scratch-off ticket from the same store and scored a second $1 million prize.

On Monday, when he purchased a $20 Premiere Cash ticket from the same Sam’s Mini Stop.
