ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota lottery player has gotten lucky twice in just over a year.

Forty-six-year-old Anthony Fusaro of Plymouth hit a Gopher 5 jackpot last week worth nearly $875,000. He won $1 million playing Mega Millions last year.

Fusaro said in a statement that it’s just “pure luck” that he scored two big lottery wins. But he says he “always believed it would happen again.”

Lottery spokeswoman Emily Frost tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/2dZWgOL ) that no lottery customer in Minnesota has ever had multiple payouts that large.
