Deborah Davis’ kids used to give her a hard time about playing the Lottery.
“They’d say, ‘No one really wins,’” she told officials with the Virginia Lottery.
Then, Davis scratched a $150,000 Cash Chaser ticket from the Virginia Lottery and won the game’s $150,000 top prize.
“It feels a little unreal,” she said as she collected her prize from the Virginia Lottery.
In fact, it’s probably not surprising that when she showed the winning ticket to her daughter, the response was, “Is that fake?”
The winning ticket was bought at the Food Lion, located at 5835 Virginia Avenue in Bassett.
This is the third and final top prize claimed in $150,000 Cash Chaser (game #2032), which means the game is closed. It is the Virginia Lottery’s policy to end Scratcher games after the last top prize is claimed. The odds of winning the top prize were 1 in 1,305,600, while the odds of winning any prize in this game were 1 in 4.29.
Authorized by Virginia voters in a successful 1987 referendum, the Virginia Lottery generates more than $1.6 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, lottery customers helped generate more than $595 million dollars in funding for public education.
