March 9 (UPI) -- A Connecticut man won a $30,000 lottery prize four years after winning the same amount from the same ticket purchased at the same store.

Thomas Perretta of Stamford told Connecticut Lottery officials he bought a 30X Cash scratch-off ticket from Cove Convenience in Stamford because the game had been lucky for him in the past.

Perretta's ticket won him $30,000, the same amount he previously won four years ago from a 30X Cash ticket he bought at the same store.

"The first time the prize helped me pay some bills. This time, it's going towards a new kitchen remodel. The rest will go in the bank," Perretta said.
