Buying a winning lottery ticket is hard enough, but a player in Chicago managed a three-peat.

Christopher Kaelin has won a total of $276,000 from the Illinois lottery.

But those winnings came from three instant tickets, in three weeks.

He says he won $25,000 on the first ticket, so he decided to buy another one, of the same game.

That one was worth $1,000.

He bought the third ticket the following week, and that had the $250,000 grand prize.

Kaelin says he’ll use the money toward a house, his student loans, and his upcoming wedding.
