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.
