Iowa LotteryIowa Lottery: Iowa man wins $100,000 lottery for second time

An eastern Iowa man has beat extraordinary odds by winning $100,000 from the Iowa Lottery's Cash Game a second time.

K. Morris Richardson picked up his second jackpot on Tuesday.

"I just kind of smiled all the way to the bank," he said.

Richardson first won $100,000 in 2000 through the same daily game.  His latest win came when he matched the five numbers for Monday's drawing.

Richardson, 79, a member of the Solon American Legion Post 460, bought the $100,000 Cash Game ticket at a Hy-Vee Food store.

Lottery officials said the odds of winning the game twice are one in 324,632.

I would think that the odds are the same as they would be if you were trying to win it the first time!

    Its not like he hit it back to back with one dollar tickets. I am sure a guy like this plays it daily and for a nice amount. This game is a fair game as the odds to hit the top prize arent overbearing.

      The odds listed are for hitting on a $1 play.

        I agree. Also, there is a guy who won $1 million, and did it again a year later for another $1 million.

          Mav:

          I bet the $1m "wins" were annuity-only.
