RICHMOND, Va. — Some people have all the luck. On Feb. 11, that person was Deborah Brown.
Brown won the Virginia Lottery 30 times that day.
She initially bought 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers 1-0-3-1. She said she just had a feeling.
“A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers,” she said.
Later that day, she bought 10 more tickets with the same numbers.
Sure enough, that night the winning numbers were 1-0-3-1.
“I nearly had a heart attack,” she said.
Each of her 30 plays won the $5,000 top prize. She recently picked her check for $150,000.
“She bought all her tickets at Irongate Shell located at 6437 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield County,” a Virginia Lottery spokesman said. “Ms. Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she’s considering some home renovation.”
