Barryton, Mich. (AP) People see Joe Palmarchuk and make some odd requests. He says they like to rub him for good luck.

And why not? The Mecosta County man has won lottery jackpots in two states - one for $1.35 million in Michigan last month and another for $1 million in Tennessee.

Palmarchuk hopes he's not done. He tells MLive.com that he's buying 20 Mega Millions tickets for a Friday jackpot of more than $400 million.

He says it's hard to imagine such a prize. Palmarchuk says he and wife Phillis still haven't spent any of their last winnings. He's considering a spelling bee for children in the Barryton area, northeast of Grand Rapids.
