Colorado Man Wins Lottery Twice In One Day; Gets र15 Crores As Prize Money

Winning a lottery is an exciting affair. And, even though the odds of getting the prize money are dicey, sometimes taking the risk is worth it. Like, a man won $1 million in the lottery after losing his home to the Australian bushfires. However, can you imagine the joy of winning not one but two lotteries?
