Virginia woman, with low expectations about her lottery numbers, discovered she had the winning ticket.
Sharon Anderson shared that she saw that I had not won the $100,000 prize. Sharon Anderson said this to the Virginia Lottery.
I thought, There’s no way that I’m going win that.
Her intuition was wrong. Officials announced last week that her ticket was worth $1 million because it had enough matching numbers.
Anderson is a restaurant manager and celebrated her big win. Officials said that she stopped by a Sheetz convenience shop in Stuarts Draft to celebrate the victory. The store is located in Augusta County near Shenandoah National Park, and about 100 miles northwest from Richmond.
Anderson gambled on the New Year’s Millionaire Raffle while she was at the store. Anderson was one of four people who won $1 million by selling her winning ticket.
Anderson said that it was unreal as she took home her prize.
It’s very exciting!
The Virginia Lottery did not release any information about how much Anderson will be taking home after taxes.
Anderson, who lives near Stuarts Draft, plans to use her prize money for retirement.
Anderson was incorrect about the odds of winning big. However, Anderson’s predictions were correct in other areas.
Officials in North Carolina said that a man who bought a lotto ticket had a hunch about it before he won a huge win.
