A lucky winner might just be the luckiest man alive as he has scooped a $1 million lottery prize for the second time in just over a year – calling the win ‘more shocking than the first’.

Antoine Beaini, 68, from the town of Milton in Ontario Province, Canada, has continued to play Lotto Max despite winning $1 million just last summer.

His love for the game has now paid off again as he garnered another Maxmillions payout of $1 million on the September 23 draw this year, collecting his check last week.

Beaini was at home when he decided to check his ticket on the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) app.

‘I couldn’t believe it,’ the lucky winner told lottery officials. ‘I thought, “Again?” It was more shocking than the first win!’

‘I told my wife and she was very happy!’

Beaini was struck with déjà vu when he visited the OLG Prize Center in Toronto to collect his check: ‘I was also at the prize center in August 2021 to pick up a $1 million prize.

‘This is incredible. I feel awesome!’

Beaini isn’t just keeping the money for himself, he noticed that this win goes out to his family and he wants to make sure the next generation never has any money problems.

‘I want to make sure the next generation of my family is set up comfortably,’ he shared.

He bought the winning ticket at Milton Convenience Store on Main Street in his hometown.

The public servant thought he only won $10,000 at first but ended up scooping the $1 million prize.

According to olg,54 per cent of people in Ontario bought a lottery ticket within the last year.

The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately one in 14 million, which is said to be similar to placing the names of everyone in Ontario in a hat and randomly pulling out your own.

Beaini, who has been playing the lottery since 1982, said at the time: ‘I’ve been replaying the same numbers since early last year.

‘I had a few small wins and decided I liked these numbers.

‘I thought I won $10,000 at first, but I scanned it again and saw $1 million and couldn’t believe it.

‘My wife thought I was joking!’

‘This is a blessing. I never thought this would happen to me.’
