The North Carolina man wasn't sure if he had bought a ticket in the Lucky for Life state lottery, so he filled out an online form.

“I just lay in bed and watched a basketball game on TV and couldn't remember if I filled it out or not,” said Scottie Thomas, 49, of Fayetteville, according to the North Carolina Education Lottery.

“I went ahead and filled it out again, and the next morning my son asked why there were two different amounts. I realized, "I think I filled it out twice," the man said.

It turned out that he won $ 25000 a year for life for each ticket in the November 27 raffle.

According to the lottery, this prize is the second largest prize in Lucky for Life, after a lifetime payout of $ 1000 per day.

“When I realized that I had won, I had to lie down on the floor because I just couldn't believe it,” Thomas said. "It's just a blessing."

Thomas, the dump truck operator, opted for a one-time payment of $ 780 for both tickets instead of the annual payments, according to lottery rules.

He stated that he wants to invest in his business, pay bills, help his family, and possibly buy a house.
