Local News

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Deborah Brown is one lucky lady!

Brown, who won the lottery 30 times in one day, said she just had a “feeling” about the numbers. 

The Virginia Lottery said in a statement that Brown, who lives in Richmond, initially bought 20 Pick 4 tickets all with the same four numbers. 

“A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers,” she said.

Brown apparently had such a good feeling about the numbers that she bought 10 more tickets at Irongate Shell in Chesterfield County. 

When that number combination was drawn on Feb. 11, each of her 30 plays won the $5,000 top prize, earning her a total of $150,000.

“I nearly had a heart attack!” Brown said as she claimed her prize.

Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she’s considering some home renovation.

According to lottery officials, the chances of matching all four numbers in that exact order are 1 in 10,000.
