Three times lucky! A Colorado man has won the lottery for the third time in a year and half for a total of $1 million.

Most recently, Paul G. of Colorado Springs won $250,000 on Aug. 28, according to Colorado Lottery officials. Two weeks before that, he won $500,000. And in March 2017, he won another $250,000. 

Earlier this month, lottery officials surprised Paul with the check for half a million. 

"Holy s***," Paul said at the time. "I don't even know what to say."

"Did you ever think you'd be holding one of those checks?" officials asked. 

"No, but I'm sure happy I am," Paul said.
