George Traykov, 45, of Ilford, England, won £1 million ($1,542,870 CAD) in a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle in September 2011.
Last November, he claimed the £160,873.80 ($248,207.36 CAD) he won in a EuroMillions draw. He missed out on the £12-million jackpot by one number.
Traykov told the BBC that he "wasn't really that bothered" with his impressive second windfall, as the first win allowed him to pursue what he loves: skydiving.
"I’m lucky because I have lived a very happy life. I have a beautiful daughter and a job I love," the former member of the Bulgarian skydiving team said. "Skydiving is still more exciting than winning the lottery."
"The first win enabled me to make a few changes in my life, most importantly sending my daughter Elaine to private school and maintaining her skydiving training," he said.
About his first win, the clean-living property developer added, "I don’t drink and I don’t smoke so I had to waste a whole box of champagne until I got it spraying right."
