A Colorado man is currently the luckiest man alive after claiming two $1 Million Power ball prizes on Monday as Colorado lottery received approval to pay prizes worth $10,000 or more at a drive thru office due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Joe B bought a couple of Powerball plays in the morning at 7-Eleven and made a stop in the evening at Loaf and Jug to buy a few more. Joe has been playing the same set of numbers for 30 years.
“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”
He was identified as the winner of the two prizes a month after he played the lottery on March 25. When asked what he will do with the money, Joe said he had plans for it.
“Joe B’ finally collected his winnings on Monday, a month after playing the lucky numbers.
Winners must make an appointment to claim their prize, or do so through the mail.
Joe B was pictured holding large versions of his checks to partially conceal his face as he posed for a picture at the drive-thru,” a post on the Colorado lottery website read.
