MINNESOTA CITY, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota City man has beaten long odds with a scratch-off lottery ticket.
For the second time in a little more than a year, Mike Mendyk has hit the jackpot, winning another $100,000.
Mendyk beat odds of 1 in 610,000 with a $5 Cash and Cadillac scratch-off ticket. Mendyk says he used his lucky scratcher, a silver envelope opener, to reveal the top prize. It's the same one he used last year when he won the same amount on a Walleye Winnings ticket.
The Winona Daily News says Mendyk and his wife, Becky, plan to travel to lottery headquarters in Roseville on Friday, his 51st birthday, to claim the money. The couple plans to take an anniversary vacation later this year.
