Brooklyn Man Wins Second $10M Prize In New York Lottery

Wayne Murray of Brooklyn scratched off another $10 million top prize a year after buying the winning ticket at his local convenience store.

Lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place. Apparently that doesn’t apply to winning lottery tickets.

According to The New York Lottery, a man who won $10 million last year in Brooklyn off a scratch-off ticket has done it again. Wayne Murray scratched off another $10 million top prize when he bought the winning ticket at H&A Gas & Convenience located at 4102 Ave. H in Brooklyn—where Murray bought his first winning ticket in August 2022!

Murray spent $30 on the winning ticket for New York Lottery’s 200X scratch-off game. He cashed in on the $10 million in 2022 when he selected the Black Titanium ticket (also $30). Murray opted for the lump sum option. He received $6,122,400 after taxes.

The New York Post spoke to Murray after the win was revealed. “Some of us just like to be discreet,” Murray said. “I just want to be discreet; that’s all it is.”

“Twice in a row—what are the odds? You can’t even think about it. It’s not comprehensible,” Hassan Nabil, a clerk who works at H&A Gas & Convenience, told The Post.

“He’s a super regular guy here,” Nabil said. He’s very friendly with the locals and very generous with his time. He could have moved out of the neighborhood after winning the first time, but he stood his ground. Money changes a lot of people, but he doesn’t show off or anything. He keeps it real, keeps it honest. It’s a game for him, so he just keeps playing. If you win, you just want to win more.”

Lottery officials said that the odds of winning the 200X scratch-off game are 1 in 3.64 million, and the odds of winning the Black Titanium game are 1 in 3.53 million.

The New York Post Murray if he is a religious man.

“Extremely,” he said.
