According to the New Mexico Lottery, the odds of winning a Roadrunner Cash jackpot are approximately 1 in 435,000. Chris Henderson has now beaten those odds three times.

Lottery officials announced Wednesday that Henderson won the jackpot in Tuesday’s Roadrunner Cash drawing. His ticket had the winning numbers of 5, 15, 18, 30 and 33; that combination won Henderson $255,000.

Henderson, 52,  first won in October 1999, when he won a $15,000 jackpot. In October 2010, he won $217,000.

Lottery officials said Henderson was calm when he claimed his prize at lottery headquarters in Albuquerque. His oldest daughter, however, handled thing a bit differently.

“My little sister called me at work and she said, ‘Dad just won again,’” Jasmine Henderson told lottery officials.  “I could hear him screaming in the background.”

Henderson plans on making a donation to his church and to invest the rest of the money in his business.
