    New York man who won $10 million scratch-off last year wins another $10 million game

    By Doc Louallen, USA TODAY,


    A New York man is making winning $10 million into an annual event.

    Wayne Murray of Brooklyn won $10 million playing the New York Lottery's 200X scratch-off game on Tuesday, the lottery said. Last year on Aug. 22, Murray won $10 million playing the Black Titanium game.

    He bought each ticket at the same exact store, an H&A Gas & Convenience in Brooklyn.

    Murray opted to get his latest winnings in one lump sum, which turned out to be just over $6 million after taxes.
