Woman Felt 'Strangely Drawn' to Number Combination - Wins 30 Different Lotto Prizes in Same Drawing
Always trust your instincts. Last month, Deborah Brown felt strangely drawn towards a sequence of numbers: 1-0-3-1. “A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers,” the Richmond, Virginia resident told the Virginia Lottery. Unable to shake her attraction to the number sequence, she bought twenty different Pick 4 lottery tickets, all with the same combination of numbers. Later that same day, she bought ten more of the tickets with the same sequence. Feeling confident, she waited to see if she was a winner. Something she basically thought into existence because all thirty of her lottery tickets were winners. If she had just bought one ticket, she would have just won the top prize of $5,000 – but with all of her winning tickets combined, she won $150,000. “I nearly had a heart attack!” Brown exclaimed. According to a Pick 4 lottery spokesman in a statement to The New York Times, Brown’s success is all the more shocking considering how the odds of winning the Pick 4 lottery are reportedly about 1 in 10,000. Though Brown says that she doesn’t have any plans for her winnings just yet, she says she might use the money to do some home renovations.
