Lightning really does strike twice!

There are lucky men, and then there's Jules Parent.

For the second time in nine years, the 69-year-old Quebecer has won $1 million playing the lottery.
"I know very well that the probability of winning is extremely small and winning twice in a relatively short time is really something else," Parent said in an interview Thursday.

Parent showed up at Loto-Quebec offices in Quebec City to pick up a cheque for $1,222,069 after winning the jackpot playing the Crown of Egypt lottery online.

He won $1 million back in 2008 playing Lotto 6-49.
