Winning the lottery is a once-in-a-lifetime thrill. But one Virginia woman got to experience that feeling 30 times over. One month ago, Deborah Brown of Richmond, VA bought 30 Pick 4 tickets.
But rather than spread out her chances, Brown put all 30 on the same number combination – 1-0-3-1. In fact, Brown was so certain of her lucky number that after buying the first 20 tickets, she went back to the same store and bought ten more, all with the same numbers.
Sure enough, it matched that night’s Pick 4 drawing exactly, netting Brown $5,000 per ticket for $150,000 total. Brown says she ‘nearly had a heart attack’ and is thinking about putting the money towards a home renovation.
