Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Fargo man is more than 865-thousand dollars richer after winning the lottery.

John Frisch bought a Minnesota State Lottery Gopher 5 ticket on September 25th - from Brookdale Liquor in Moorhead.

Talk about luck.

This is the second time Frisch has taken home a big chunk of change - In January 2012 when he won nearly a half a million dollars jackpot.

Liquor store employees say it's exciting.

Jackie Rheault, Brookdale Liquor Employee: “It is awesome, it is awesome. We are all very nervous knowing that we sold the winning ticket and might have been the one that touched it.”

Frisch told the MN State Lottery he doesn't plan to continue gambling - saying he'd feel quote "piggish" if he won a third time.
