A maintenance worker from La Grange has struck it rich twice in just four months.
Andrey Griswold won his second $100,000 prize while playing an instant game with the North Carolina Education Lottery.
Griswold won in the $100,000 Treasure Tree game after buying three $5 tickets at the Save Mart of Lenoir on Wooten Street in La Grange. In July the man won the top prize in the 10X the Money scratch-off game.
"I was shocked twice," said Griswold. Asked if he felt lucky to win big twice, Griswold said, "No. Not luck. Blessed."
Griswold collected $68,001 after taxes were withheld. He plans to put his money into savings.
