If you win the lotto, you may give some of your Enormous loot to close family and friends but you’ll also have to fork some over to the IRS. Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story
A Virginia woman who won the lottery 30 times in one day said she just had a “feeling” about the numbers.
Deborah Brown initially bought 20 Pick 4 tickets with the same four numbers – 1-0-3-1 – according to a statement from the Virginia Lottery.
“A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers,” she said in the statement.
She had such a good feeling about the numbers she bought 10 more tickets at the Shell station in Chesterfield County, Virginia.
The top prize for each $1 ticket was $5,000, so when Brown’s combination was drawn on Feb. 11 she racked up $150,000 in winnings.
As she was collecting her winnings, the Richmond woman said she “nearly had a heart attack.”
The chances of matching all four numbers in that exact order are 1 in 10,000, according to lottery officials.
Brown said she doesn’t have immediate plans for her winnings, but is considering home renovations, according to the statement.
