Richard Maynard won $1 million.

Trying his luck again after winning $60 in the lottery, a Raleigh man bought a ticket worth $1 million.

Richard Maynard claimed a $60 prize Monday at a Cary Quality Mart, where he purchased two $10 million Colossal Cash tickets.

One of them was worth $1 million.

He’s always imagined winning the lottery, he said.

He chose a lump sum payout of $600,000. After taxes, Maynard took home $424,500.

Maynard is a building materials salesperson, and he said he might use his winnings to buy a new truck.

“I never get a new truck,” he said in a statement. “I always bought a used one. This might be the time I get a new one though.”

He also plans to put some of the money toward his retirement.

“I’ve always wanted to move to the beach when I retire,” he said. “Now maybe a nice boat will be in order.”
