Henry County woman wins $100K from Virginia Lottery game

HENRY COUNTY, VA – A Henry County woman won the top prize of Virginia Lottery’s Crossword Connect 5X; $100,000.

“I didn’t know what to do! I was just in shock!” Brenda Moorefield told lottery officials.

Moorefield purchased the ticket at the Old Country Store, located at 18241 A. L. Philpott Highway in Ridgeway.

Crossword Connect 5X is a scratcher game that features prizes ranging from $5 up $100,000.

This is the fourth top prize claimed, which means two more remain unclaimed.

The chances of winning that top prize are 1 in 1,224,000, according to lottery officials.

Virginia Lottery said all profits go to K-12 education in Virginia.

Henry County received nearly $9.4 million in lottery funds for K-12 education last fiscal year, according to the lottery organization.
