While we all wanted to cross out the bucket list in our life of becoming an instant millionaire, this lucky man from the USA just won a $1 million lottery jackpot twice on the same day.
A man, with the name “Joe B,” won two $1 million jackpot Powerball prizes on 25 March 2020, as reported by 9news.
His luck of winning the two big rewards came after 30 years of persistence playing the same numbers in Colorado.
Lottery officials said he bought the two winning tickets from two different stores on Lake Avenue in Pueblo, about a mile apart.
Communications director Meghan Dougherty said the winner bought one ticket in the morning while the other in the evening. The man claimed his winnings two days later.
Nonetheless, Colorado was not the only one sharing a lottery success story during that week. A $2 million winning ticket was sold on the same day’s Powerball drawing in New Jersey.
Following the safety measures during the pandemic, Colorado Lottery in early April allowed winners of $10,000 and up to claim their prizes through a touch-free drive-through claims office.
They can make a phone call or email to set an appointment for claiming their prizes.
