PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- May 9, 2011 -

Months after a 39-year-old man won $3 million from a Florida Lottery Monopoly scratch-off ticket, he won another jackpot.

This time, it was $10 million top prize in the lottery's Billion
Dollar Blockbuster scratch-off game, lottery officials said Monday.

Jody Massengale, a general manager at Mellow Mushroom on Panama City Beach, chose a one-time, lump-sum payment, which amounts to $6.5 million before taxes.

Massengale says it is "awesome" to win twice.

Lottery officials say the Billion Dollar Blockbuster game, which
costs $20 per ticket, has the highest cash payout of the scratch
off games. They say six $10 million prizes remain.

    This is just another ploy by the state to get poor people to spend their rent money for lottery tickets. Your chances of winning anything significant (other than $2 or a free ticket) are about 2 billion to one. There should be a law against this crooked stuff.
