Millionaire lottery winner ‘addicted to jackpots’ after scooping a 4th top prize


An incredibly lucky man scooped a $1million (£730,000) jackpot in his fourth lottery win since 1999.

Mike Luciano has won a whopping $4.6million (£3.36 million) in total from his lotto wins as he lcimaed his latest prize from a $20 scratch-off ticket on January 6.

The 55-year-old’s first win in 1999 was $100,000 (£73,000) but the cash kept flowing after he won $500,000 (£365,000) from the Pennsylvania state lottery in the US last year and scooped $3million (£2.19 million) in 2016.

Luciano purchased the January 6 ticket at a shop along Pennsylvania Route 764 after stopping to play a video gaming machine his late mother enjoyed.

He told the Altoona Mirror last year that he feels “blessed” to win so many times throughout his life, but also admitted to having a gambling addiction.

He said: “I don’t know why I’ve been so blessed, winning big three times in my lifetime. Most people are just looking for one win—and I know this is incredible.

“But, I’m convinced no one wins this many times without playing more than they should. I’m addicted to it. People shouldn’t do what I do.
