Winning the lottery once in a lifetime is rare. Winning the lottery twice is super rare. Winning the lottery twice in 5 months is incredible! This is what happened to 28-year-old African immigrant Melhig Melhig. Yes his name is doubled, which could be the reason he won twice. His first win happened in April when he purchased a scratch ticket and won $1.5 Million. He continued to play and won a second time this past August. This time winning $2 Million. Melhig plans to purchase a gas station or car wash and go back to school.
