Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A man who won $200,000 playing the Connecticut Lottery's Keno game won a second prize of $100,000 by playing the exact same numbers.

Mark Roy, who became the largest Keno winner in the state's history when he won $200,000 from the game by matching all seven numbers with a 4X multiplier last year, said he played the exact same numbers at the same retailer -- the Gatehouse Tavern in Groton -- and again matched all seven digits.

Roy's more recent game included a 2X multiplier, earning him $100,000.

"The numbers -- they all mean something to me. They're all family birthday numbers. I'm just ecstatic," Roy said. "I had a feeling -- Thursday I got up and said, 'Something good is going to happen today!'"

Roy said he plans to use his latest winnings to book a vacation.

"I feel so happy! There's money in the bank, I have a great job -- I feel blessed. Blessed with family and friends!" Roy said.
