Colorado man wins $ 1 million lottery jackpot twice the same day

VILLAGE: With a little luck and persistence, a Colorado man has won the jackpot twice after playing the same numbers for 30 years.

officials identified Joe B as the winner of two $ 1 million Powerball jackpots on March 25. He claimed the profits on Friday, KUSA-TV reported.

The winning tickets were sold on Lake Avenue in Pueblo at two different stores, a mile away, authorities said.

Joe B. bought one ticket in the morning and the other at night, said communications director Meghan Dougherty.

The Colorado Lottery received approval earlier this month to process winning tickets worth $ 10,000 or more at a driverless claims office, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Winners must make an appointment to claim their prize, or by mail.
