A man living in Colorado named Joe B has struck luck twice in a lottery game in a single day after he played the same for 30 years.
He won $1 million (N389,200,000) on both occasions in the Powerball jackpot on Wednesday, March 25 and claimed the winnings on Friday, March 27, NBC reports.
It should be noted that the winning tickets were sold on Lake Avenue in Pueblo at two different stores, a distance of a mile apart from each other, officials confirmed.
To win the jackpot, the lucky player bought some tickets in the morning and got a few more in the evening. He hit the main Powerball out of his several numbers.

Thomson, however, said he decided to continue working because it made him “feel normal”. It was gathered that the lotto winner is also not splashing any money on flashy cars – which he dubbed “a waste of money”.
Thomson and his wife, 41-year-old Lenka, purchased a second-hand car. According to Mirror Online, Thomson is struggling to comprehend how much has changed.
The multi-billionaire said the win set him on an “emotional rollercoaster” and it was “very stressful”. Thomson will be working part-time despite being the richest-ever lottery winner in Britain.
