A Massachusetts man won a \$1 million prize after purchasing a scratch-off ticket with the winnings from a previous game in which he had won \$500.

In January, Deivson Alves Martins won \$500 for a scratching post he bought at the Family Farms store in Worcester. A month later, he stopped by the same store again.

This time, Martins, who works as a carpenter, bought a \$50 scratching post and scored a much bigger prize.

His most recent ticket was a huge \$1 million win, which turned into \$650,000 before taxes thanks to him opting for a lump sum payment.
