A lucky man won two jackpots prizes, worth $1 million (P50.5 million) each, on the same day from a lottery in Colorado, United States.

The state’s lottery commission said that Joe B. chooses his own numbers but also uses the Quick Picks option, where a machine selects random numbers for the player.
The lucky man purchased the winning tickets from two convenience stores in the same day; one in the morning and the other in the evening. The commission also shared the two tickets with the winning numbers being 5, 9, 27, 39 and 42.
“Can you believe what amazing luck!” the commission stated.
Joe B. redeemed the tickets from the commission’s drive-thru claims office.
When asked about what he and his wife were thinking of spending the winnings on, he said, “the Boss has plans for it.” JB
