Midstate man wins his second Pa. lottery, wife says he ‘must be the luckiest person’


CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — A Cumberland County man who won $1 million from a scratch-off ticket got his cash.

Ray Boose Jr. was presented with his check on Thursday. He won the prize after buying a “Millionaire Maker” ticket on August 27. But this isn’t the first time he’s won big.

“First thing, I called my wife and she said bring the ticket home, she wants to see it,” Boose Jr. said. “She was like you must be the luckiest person I know because a couple of months earlier I won $100,000 for “Mining for Millions.”
