CHEROKEE, Iowa (AP) — Don’t tell Clark Voge, of Cherokee, Iowa, that lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice.

The Sioux City Journal reports ( ) that the southwest Iowa man has hit two $30,000 lottery jackpots in as many months.

Both winning tickets were bought at Sparky’s, a convenience store in Cherokee.

The Iowa Lottery says the odds of winning the jackpot on that scratch game are 1 in 120,211.
