Three years after he won a $10 million lottery prize, a New York man has done it again.

Juan Hernandez, of Uniondale, won the New York Lottery’s $10,000,000 Deluxe scratch-off game this month, claiming the grand prize, the lottery said.

In a release published Tuesday, the lottery said lightning struck twice for Hernandez, who won the same amount on a $350,000,000 Cash Spectacular scratch-off ticket in 2019.

"I’m still trying to spend the $10 million I won in [2019]," Hernandez said in a statement.

Hernandez's most recent winning scratch-off was purchased at a Stop & Shop in Hempstead.

He opted to cash out in a lump sum totaling $6.51 million after required withholdings.

The lottery said in a statement that, as of its publication, there were still three top prizes left on the $10,000,000 Deluxe ticket.
