A Georgia man who won the state lottery twice on Valentine's Day eve says he owes his good luck to his wife, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said.

James McAllister, 62, of Acworth, Ga.,scratched off a $5,000 winner in the Georgia Lottery Millionaire Jumbo Bucks game while having breakfast with his wife last Friday, then bought another ticket that paid $250,000 later that day while he was buying her a card.

McAllister wasn't available for comment, but he did issue a written statement through the Georgia Lottery crediting his wife with being his lucky charm.

It was because of Valentine's Day, he said. If it hadn't been for my wife, I probably wouldn't have won either time."
