SPRING HILL, Tenn. -- For Charles William "C.W." Whitson, winning the lottery seems to be becoming a habit.

Whitson, who won this week playing the lottery's Play It Again drawing, won a million-dollar prize in 2010. The retired handyman won the $1 million playing an instant ticket game, according to a news release.

"I guess I'm just lucky," Whitson said in the release. "It's definitely hard to believe."

The lottery's Play It Again program began in 2007 as an effort to reduce litter, according to the release. Players register their tickets on the website to be entered into the drawings, which are held about three times a year. The program has since awarded more than $18.5 million.
