Man Wins $10 Million Lottery For Second Time In Three Years

A man from New York has incredibly won $10,000,000 (£7,475,450) from the lottery for the second time in three years.

Juan Hernandez, who might be one of the luckiest human beings on the planet right now, says 'I'm still trying to spend the $10 million I won in [2019],'

If you're thinking, 'that's surely got to be bulls***', so are we.

Well, the New York Lottery confirmed that Hernandez managed to grab the top prize on the $350,000,000 (£261,640,750) Cash Spectacular scratch-off ticket after purchasing it from Stop & Shop in Hempstead.

The man from Uniondale received a lump sum payment of $6,510,000 (£4,866,517.95) after required withholdings, making it the second time for him to win big after winning $10 million back in 2019.

I mean, it's completely mind boggling to think what you would do with that sort of money - do you spend it or do you save it?

Although the answer might be somewhere in between, American billionaire Mark Cuban says 'you don't want to blow it all in one spot'.

“You don’t become a smart investor when you win the lottery,” he told Dallas News.

He then surprisingly added: "Don’t make investments. You can put it in the bank and live comfortably. Forever."

Speaking about the temptation to increase your earnings he says: "You will sleep a lot better knowing you won’t lose money."

Additionally, he warns winners of friends and family turning you into a human ATM.

“Tell all your friends and relatives no,” he said.

“They will ask. Tell them no. Feel free to help some, but talk to your accountant before you do anything.”

Andy Carter, who's a senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, told The Sun: "Take your time. When people do win, it suddenly becomes serious, so people aren't often as gregarious as they think they will be.

"It is a bit of a huge shock. And sometimes you can be sort of concerned with the shock, you forget to celebrate.

"And actually winning the lottery is a fantastic and amazing thing to happen to anybody.

"For your own sake, you want to look back and think actually, I shall never ever forget this.

"Because I think if anything happens to your life, if you get married, if you move house, if you have a child. You celebrate it. 

"You take photographs of it, you record it, you remember it, you cherish it. And this is exactly the same."
