        NEW YORK — How lucky can you get? Very.

        Adeline and Eugene Angelo won $5 million Thursday after buying the winning ticket in last week's Lotto game. In 1996, they won $2.5 million after splitting a $10 million jackpot with three other people.

        Eugene Angelo, 81, said he and his wife would share their new fortune with their three sons and their families. Taking the lump-sum payment of $2.5 million, Eugene and Adeline and each of their sons will get about $513,000 before taxes.

        "We're a little older, a little wiser and there are a few more of us, when you count the grandkids," Angelo said at a news conference. "We're still the same old people. Still very excited. It's a great feeling."

        Adeline Angelo, 74, a retired medical secretary, said she hoped the new money will "buy us good health and longevity."

        Their last big prize allowed the couple to move from the Bronx to Putnam County, about 50 miles north of the city.

        Eugene Angelo said they would continue to live modestly. But they will continue to buy lottery tickets "just for the fun of it," his wife added.

        The Angelo sons — Eugene Jr., 48, Steven, 47, and Michael, 42 — who joined their parents at the news conference, said they would use the money for home renovations, new home purchases and their children's college education.

        Eugene Jr. said his father spent about $42 on lottery tickets every week, and has done so since the lottery began 29 years ago.

        The couple bought their latest ticket at a market in Croton Falls for the drawing on Aug. 18, just one month shy of their 50th wedding anniversary, on Sept. 28.

        Lightening struck twice.........what is the odds of that! I am glad to see that it happened.

        I don't ever think i would see that in my lifetime. After the first one i would prolly go into cardiac arrest!

        Great story!
