Luckiest man in Michigan? Meet the lottery player who just won a second million-dollar jackpot

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - This guy has all the luck.

Officials say Joseph Palmarchuk won a $1.35 million lottery jackpot Wednesday in Michigan's Classic Lotto 47 game. In the past few years, Palmarchuk has also won a $1 million lottery game in Tennessee.

Palmarchuk and wife Phillis moved to Mecosta County, north of Grand Rapids, in 2011.

What's his secret? Palmarchuk says he likes to buy lottery tickets that retailers put aside as mistakes.

The Palmarchuks plan to hunt for a condominium in a warm state to skip Michigan winters.
