A South Carolina man has won $100,000 playing the same lottery numbers that he's played for more than 20 years.

News outlets report the man won the prize playing the Palmetto Cash 5 game last week. A South Carolina Education Lottery release didn't identify the man, whose go-to numbers are a combination of family birth dates and his wedding anniversary.

The release said the odds of winning the game are one in nearly 502,000. The man said he plans to continue using the same numbers, though his family says he should reconsider.
