Hopewell, VA—After playing a Virginia Lottery Scratcher game, a Hopewell man and Army veteran won $125,000.
Jose Figueroa bought the winning ticket at the Miller Mart store, located at 10101 James River Drive in Hopewell.
"When I scratched it, I thought I'd won $30," he told Virginia Lottery officials as he claimed his prize.
Upon realizing how much the ticket was actually worth, Figueroa, who retired from the Army recently after serving 31 years, snapped a picture of it with his cell phone and sent it to his wife.
The Scratcher game Figueroa played, Queen of Hearts, features prizes ranging from $5.00, up to $125,000. Figueroa's win is the second top prize claimed in Queen of Hearts, which Virginia Lottery officials say leaves three top prize tickets unclaimed.
