Lottery player wins $1 million prize twice in one day after having played same numbers for 30 years
A lottery player, who has played the same numbers for the last 30 years, has won a $1 million prize twice in one day.
Joe B, who hails from Pueblo in Colorado, won two Powerball prizes on Match 25. But due to coronavirus restrictions in the US, he claimed his winnings a month after the results were announced.
According to reports, Joe B made an appointment to collect his winnings at one of the lottery company’s drive-through claims offices.
“Joe likes to play one play of his own numbers, and a couple more plays with Quick Picks. He bought a few Powerball plays in the morning at 7-Eleven on 926 Lake Ave, then stopped and bought a few more plays in the evening at Loaf N’ Jug on 2050 Lake Ave.
Can you believe what amazing luck!” read a statement on the Colorado Lottery website.
Joe B was able to redeem his winning tickets on Monday morning. When the claims staff asked him what he and his wife plan to do with the lottery prize, he said, “Boss has plans for it.”
A lottery player winning multiple draws on the same day has happened before in the US.
Back in 2018, Robert Stewart from Edgewater in New Jersey bagged a prize-money of $5 million (Rs 36.2 crores) after winning three lotteries back to back. Fair to say, the man from New Jersey was ‘three times lucky’ and not just third time lucky.
As per reports, Robert won the jackpot in a scratch lottery game in August 2018. But the retired union pile driver wanted to add to his winnings and went back to the local convenience store and bought two more tickets. To the surprise of many, he won an additional $500 and $100. This made it three back to back lottery wins in a span of just 24 hours.
