A quick stop for bread made a man from Virginia richer by $ 100,000 after he bought a winning ticket at the box office.
First, Terence Navins told the lottery representatives he could not believe it.
“Is it real, or am I looking at it wrong?” He thought, realizing the big win, according to lottery officials.
According to lottery officials, Navins bought his Powerball lottery ticket and his bread at 7-Eleven on Lee Hill School Drive in Fredericksburg. Typically, a winning ticket brought him $ 50,000, but Navins spent another dollar on the Power Play option, which doubled his prize.
Navins used Easy Pick at the store, which randomly selected the numbers on his ticket. He did not tell anyone right away that he had won the lottery, he told lottery officials.
“I kept it to myself at first,” he told the lottery. “I called my sister and I told her. She was shouting on the phone. “
Nevins ’ticket matched four numbers plus a Powerball number, lottery officials said. According to the Virginia Lottery, the odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, and the odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25.
Fredericksburg is about 60 miles north of Richmond.
