A Four-Time Lottery Winner Reveals His Secret

Who you gonna call for luck as tonight’s $360 million Powerball drawing approaches? (Update: the jackpot has grown to $550 million in advance of the drawing May 18 – it’s now the third largest in history.)
“Mr. Lucky,” as Wilson, 72, has come to be known, just won $500,000 in the state’s Millionaire Mania game. He won the same sum in 2005, the year he also hit for a cool million. In 2004, according to the Virginia Lottery website , he won a measly $25K. If you’re keeping track, that’s $2,025,000 in nine years.
“I’m just in the right place at the right time,” Wilson says.
OK. We’ll try that. In fact, in a few minutes we’ll be heading to the Handy Dandy Market in Woodbridge, Va., the source of Wilson’s most recent winning ticket.
By the way, if you’re wondering what he does with his new fortune, he’s not at all shy about revealing that, too.
“I invest,” he says, “in Melvyn.”
