Angela Bryant did not buy the winning ticket at a Fieldale store. Her friend did.
The friend bought two Virginia Lottery Scratcher tickets, one for each of them. His ticket was not a winner; Bryant’s won $100,000.
“I just happened to get the good one,” she told Lottery officials as she claimed her prize. “I’m very, very surprised.”
Her 10X the Money ticket was bought at the Connection Market & Grill, 299 River Road in Fieldale.
When asked if she intends to share her winnings with the friend who gave her the ticket, she replied, “I have to think about that.”
10X the Money (game 1355) features prizes ranging from $5 all the way up to $100,000. This is the fourth top prize claimed in game No. 1355, which means one top-prize ticket remains unclaimed.
