Edward Williams is the definition of lucky after winning the lottery for a second time in less than a year. The 47-year-old from Wichita, Kansas, won $75,000 in September playing a $10 scratch ticket. Then on Wednesday, he defied the odds again when matched all the numbers in the Super Kansas Cash drawing to win a jackpot worth nearly $900,000.

He said when he won the $75,000, he bought a car and put the rest into the bank. This time, he said, he's saving it for retirement -- which he hopes to do at 55. After taxes, the jackpot is worth more than $627,000.

Williams says he has been playing Super Kansas Cash, Powerball and other lottery games consistently for 17 years. He says the best advice he can offer is for people to just keep playing.
