Man wins lottery twice with twin tickets

A man has won the lottery twice after accidentally buying two tickets.

Mario Loza told Virginia lottery officials he bought the pair of tickets - both with the exact same numbers, 5-7-15-21-31 - at a 7-Eleven store in Arlington.

He hit the $100,000 jackpot in a Cash 5 game, before collecting his winnings and then realising two days later his second ticket had earned him the same amount.

According to UPI, he will be using the money to pay off bills and fund his retirement.
