New Jersey LotteryNew Jersey Lottery: N.J. man who previously won $2M on lottery scratch-off wins another $250K jackpotRating:

Two years after winning $2 million in a New Jersey Lottery scratch-off game, a New Jersey man hit it big again — this time with a scratch-off ticket that proved to be worth $250,000.

Freddie Robinson of Newark bought several of the $10 tickets at C-Town Supermarkets on 18th Avenue in Newark and took them home to check. He scanned the first few on his phone with the New Jersey Lottery app and won nothing. Robinson then won $50 with the second-to-last ticket before capturing the $250,000 jackpot with his final ticket.

Robinson told lottery officials he never bought Crossword scatch-offs before but decided to try new games since he hadn't been lucky lately.

Luck seemed like the least of Robinson's problems in July 2017 when he won $2 million on a Platinum Diamond Spectacular scratch-off weeks after pocketing $656 playing Pick-4.

The then-62-year-old continued to work at his job repairing furniture, though. After his most recent big win, he considered calling it quits before deciding to work a little bit longer.

Robinson validated the $250,000 ticket on July 18.
