The man said his wife, unaware that he had already purchased tickets for the drawing twice, bought him a third ticket for the same drawing.
The man's numbers -- 5-1-3-5-9 -- came up, earning him a total prize of $150,000 from his three tickets. He said the winning number is based on his wife's birthday.
"The one time that I accidentally buy three tickets, the number hits three times. It was unbelievable," the player said.
The man said he previously won a big jackpot from a Pick 3 drawing, and he scored a top prize earlier this month in the Sept. 2 midday Pick 4 drawing. He said a lucky mistake also played a hand in that incident.
"I went to play my daughter's birth year -- 1979," he said. "The clerk at the store got it wrong and gave me the wrong number -- 1997. When I got home later, guess what four digits hit that day? 1997!"
The winner said he plans to share his prize with his two daughters.
