Your chances of winning the lottery are pretty slim - one in 45 million in fact. So, it is highly unlikely any of us will win a massive fortune in our lifetime.

However, one man certainly has a lot of luck as he has just bagged a whopping $10 million off a scratch-off.

Remarkably, the mammoth wins comes just a year after Wayne Murray won another $10 million on the lottery.

There's luck, and then there's luck.

Murray, from Brooklyn, received a single lump sum payment of $6,122,400 as part of his recent winnings, after required withholdings.

He came out victorious on New York Lottery’s 200X scratch-off game, after he purchased a ticket at a H&A Gas & Convenience located at 4102 Ave. H in Brooklyn.

Speaking of his latest win, Murray told the New York Post on how he doesn't really want to make a fuss despite making history by winning the lottery on two separate occasions.

He said: "Some of us just like to be discreet. I just want to be discreet, that’s all it is."

Both of his winning tickets were purchased at the same store, with each one setting him back $30 a pop.

Though, that is a very small fee considering the riches he now experiences today.

Clerk Hassan Nabil told the same outlet how Murray is a regular at the gas station.

With a newfound fortune, you'd expect some people to change now they have a lot of dollar to splash, but Nabil says Murray has not changed one bit.

In fact, he continues to play the lottery games as he generally enjoys them.

"Twice in a row — what are the odds? You can’t even think about it. It’s not comprehensible," Nabil said.

"He’s a super regular guy here. 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."

Perhaps how little Murray likes to make a song and dance about his fortune is evident through his neighbor.

Speaking once more to the New York Post, Constance Bryane said she had no idea Murray was so rich.

"I had no idea. He’s very humble that way," she said. "I’m going to have to congratulate him the next time I see him."
