(WXYZ) — A Belleville man won his second six-figure lottery jackpot from playing Powerball online.

Thomas McIntyre, 65, won a $250,000 prize in the April 22 Powerball drawing, his second big Powerball win.

In October 2019, McIntyre won a $100,000 prize playing Powerball online.

"You never really expect to win a huge Lottery prize, winning for a second time is truly unbelievable," McIntyre said in a press release. "Just like when I won in October, the first person I shared the news with was my mom."

"The timing was so good. I found out I won $250,000 the day before my birthday and the day before I was set to retire. This will make my retirement so much more enjoyable and take a lot of stress away."
