An Orlando man who won a multi-million dollar jackpot playing the Florida Lotto has done it again.
The Florida Lottery says 67-year-old James Bozeman Jr. has claimed a $3 million Florida Lotto jackpot from the drawing held on Aug. 31, 2013.
Last year, Bozeman claimed a $10 million Florida Lotto jackpot.
The lucky winner purchased both winning tickets from the same 7-Eleven in Edgewood on Hansel Avenue. The retailer received a bonus commission of $15,000 for selling this jackpot-winning ticket and a $40,000 bonus for selling last year’s jackpot-winning ticket, officials said.
Bozeman says he started using a different set of numbers since the last time he won and is looking forward to picking a third lucky set for the next drawing.
He has chosen to receive his latest winning in annual payments of $100,000 for the next 30 years.
The next Florida Lottery drawing will be Wednesday night at 11:15 p.m.
