A Maryland man who claimed a $20,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket previously won $30,000 about seven years ago.

The 75-year-old Baltimore man told Maryland Lottery officials he bought three $250,000 Rich scratch-offs at Downtown Tobacco last week and decided to buy a fourth ticket when all three failed to yield a prize.

The fourth ticket was found to be a $20,000 winner.

"I just really like scratch-offs," the man said. "I try to get a few every time I'm out."

The man's scratch-off habit has paid off before -- he won $30,000 from a scratch-off ticket in 2012.

The man said he plans to share his winnings with his family and put the rest into savings.
