With a little bit of luck and persistence, a man has hit the lottery jackpot twice after playing the same numbers for 30 years.
Colorado Lottery officials identified “Joe B.” as the winner of two US$1 million (AU$1.5 million) Powerball jackpots on March 25.
He claimed the winnings last Friday (local time), US news outlet KUSA-TV reported.
The winning tickets were sold on Lake Avenue in Pueblo at two different stores, almost two kilometres from each other, officials said.
“Joe B.” bought one ticket in the morning and the other in the evening, communications director Meghan Dougherty said.
The Colorado Lottery received approval earlier this month to process winning tickets worth US$10,000 (AU$16,000) or more at a touch-free, drive-thru claims office amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Winners must make an appointment to claim their prize, or do so through the mail.
