RIDGEWAY, VA – Julia Mitchell likes to drive the short distance from her home in Wentworth, NC to the state line to play Virginia Lottery games.
The drive paid off in a big way when she bought a 10X the Money ticket and scratched it to win the game’s $100,000 top prize.
“I about fell on the floor!” she told Virginia Lottery officials as she claimed her prize. “It feels unreal!”
She bought the ticket at Gondals 87, located on Morehead Avenue in Ridgeway.
Mitchell is the fourth person to claim the $100,000 prize in game #1990, which means three top prizes remain unclaimed.
The chances of winning the top prize are 1 in 1,571,714, according to Virginia Lottery.
Mitchell, who is a certified nursing assistant, said she hopes to use her winnings to buy a new truck and possibly a pontoon.
