“Severally” does not mean the same as “several times” #UseOfEnglish

Severally means: separately or individually; each in turn.

Example: “The men received their prizes severally.” This means they took turn to receive the prizes. They collected them separately. It does not mean that they collected prizes several times.

Don’t forget: “severally” does not mean “several times”.
