Some people have all the luck. In February, that person was Deborah Brown.
When Deborah Brown bought 20 Pick 4 tickets from the Virginia Lottery — all with the same four digits for the same drawing — she just had a feeling.
"A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers," she said.
A little while later, when she bought 10 more plays — again for the same drawing with that same number combination (1-0-3-1) — she said she was really feeling it.
Turns out, that feeling was right!
When that number combination was drawn in the Feb. 11 night drawing, each of her 30 plays won the $5,000 top prize, which meant total winnings of $150,000.
"I nearly had a heart attack!" the Richmond woman said as she claimed her prize.
She bought all her tickets at Irongate Shell located at 6437 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield County.
Ms. Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she's considering some home renovation.
Pick 4 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11 p.m. The top prize for a $1 play is $5,000. The chances of matching all four numbers in exact order are 1 in 10,000.
