He bought his ticket last Thursday from the Valero on Paris Pike in Georgetown, according to lottery officials.

McIntyre told lottery officials that prior to purchasing his tickets that day, a couple that lives in his neighborhood had stopped to talk to him.  “I had been cutting my grass when they stopped to congratulate me on my big win. I asked them what they were talking about,” he said.

They proceeded to show him a Facebook post where someone had posted a picture of McIntyre holding a large ceremonial lottery check for $100,000.

“Oh, that was from a while ago,” he told them, commenting on the Superman t-shirt he had on at the time. McIntyre had won $100,000 on a scratch-off ticket he claimed in 2017.

He had no idea at the time, he would go on to win $100,000 that evening on 5 Card Cash.

It was 12:30 a.m. Friday when he checked his tickets, realizing one that matched all five 5 Card Cash symbols.

“It was kind of shocking.  I hit all five, I didn’t believe it at first. I was hoping I wasn’t dreaming,” he said.

“It was wild after having the conversation with my neighbors earlier in the day and then this happens,” he said.

After taxes, McIntyre received a check for $71,000 and told lottery officials he planned to pay off bills with the winnings.

The Valero will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
