PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man's hunch about a lucky time to buy a lottery ticket paid off to the tune of $9.2 million.

Murray Magness, of Portland, won the Megabucks jackpot Oct. 17. He is a regular player who believes 4 p.m. is a lucky time to buy a ticket.

He bought his winning $5 "Quick Pick" ticket at an Albertsons store in Portland at 4:05 p.m. Oct. 17. Around three hours later, he matched all six numbers in the drawing.

Magness chose the annuity payment option. He received the first of his 25 pre-tax payments of $368,000.

Albertsons will receive a $92,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
