Might not be enough to retire on, but it sure would make the LAS meet a lot more fun! Of course the government will tax him seperately, just to get their "fair" share.

That's at least the 3rd lottery he won. The first obviously being that he has a career in aviation.

That's impressive, but there's a guy here in Georgia that has won nearly 4 million in the last three years off of scratch off tickets:

Another guy back in the summer won a Corvette in a scratch off game several months after winning $50,000 on another scratch off game.

It makes you wonder if these "incalculable odds" happen so as to encourage people to run out and buy lottery tickets!?!?!
