La Grange Maintenance Worker Wins Second $100K In 4 Months

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.

    This is the second time in a month. Here in onslow, a guy that had won 10000 hit for 100000 again. I can't win a measly 100 bucks as much as I play.

      They weren't blessed winnings dear. Some people throw the word blessed around and have no idea what it really means. Gambling and blessed are in two totally different categories.
