New Jersey Man Wins 3 Scratch-Off Cards in 1 Day, Including a $5 Million Ticket

Posted: Updated:

Who the heck is this guy?

Robert Stewart of New Jersey won prizes on not one, not two, but three state lottery scratch-off tickets in a single day. Oh, and one ticket was for $5 million.

The retired union worker from Bergen County purchased the biggest-winning ticket at the Rivermart in August, lottery officials recently announced. The clerk called the store's owner, who rushed over to congratulate the new millionaire. 

The $5 Million Fortune game costs $30 per ticket and is the most expensive scratch-off card in New Jersey's lottery.

Later that day, Stewart bought two more scratch-off cards, winning $500 and $100.

He said he plans to use the money to help his family.
