A French man's "My Million" lottery win was his second in less than two years – and now he is €1m richer. That’s $1 million and change. Some people have all the luck.

The unnamed winner from southeast France has been playing the country's lottery each week since he won his first €1m in November 2016, the BBC News reported.

Though the odds of clinching a double win were stacked against him, when the lucky monsiuer went to collect his earnings he hardly reacted to his good fortune.

"I guess he is used to winning" said the newsagent in the Haute-Savoie region where the ticket was bought.

The winner is determined to make a third win and said he will continue to play the "My Million" lottery, which accompanies the larger EuroMillions.

(Perhaps someday EuroMillions will hook up with MegaMillion and Super Lotto for a global jackpot?)

History is peppered with stories of lucky people hitting the jackpot multiple times or by some fluke.

Most recently, Mark Maltz won the lottery three times in one day in Michigan and earned himself more than $325,000 in prize money.

The 42-year-old tow company employee stopped at a gas station in Commerce Township and decided to buy a single scratch-off ticket, which won him $10.

He then used his winnings to buy a Fast Cash ticket, which was a $15 winner, and then a $5 Fast Cash Black Jack ticket and a $10 Jackpot Slots Fast Cash ticket.

He hit for the $325,184 jackpot.

In 2015, Hubert Tang won $1 million in the California Lottery after finding a $20 bill on the ground outside San Francisco International Airport and using it to purchase two scratch-off tickets.

Which begs the question – what are the odds?

In the lucky French man's case, the odds of winning the "My Million" once were about 19 million to one, and the bigger EuroMillions 140 million to one, Sky News reported.
