Tenn. man hits lottery jackpot twice

SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man has hit the lottery jackpot — twice.

C.W. Whitson of Spring Hill won $2 million this week in the Tennessee Lottery's Play It Again drawing. The win marked his second score in the last three years. Whitson also won $1 million in March 2010 playing the instant ticket game, Tennessee Millionaires Club.

Whitson said, "I guess I'm just lucky."

Whitson claimed his most recent and largest prize after he received a call from Lottery President Rebecca Hargrove notifying him he had won $2 million in the Play It Again drawing.
