$100,000 lottery ticket sold in Louisa

LOUISA, VA – Edward Gerald was on a winning streak. He’d just won $15 playing a Virginia Lottery game. He bought some more tickets with his winnings and, this time, won $20, so the Louisa man used those winnings to play again.

That time, he won $103,807.

The Print ‘n Play Rolling Jackpot ticket he bought at Hadensville Store, located at 4834 Broad Street Road, was a top prize winner.

“I took the ticket out to the car to show my son, and I said, ‘You’re not going to believe this!’” Mr. Gerald told Virginia Lottery officials. “He didn’t believe it until I showed it to him.”

Print ‘n Play Rolling Jackpot is a Virginia-only, instant-win game that has a starting jackpot of $50,000. The jackpot increases with each ticket sold until the jackpot is won. The game has three price points: $2, $5 and $10. The $2 ticket can win 20% of the jackpot, the $5 ticket can win 50% of the jackpot, and the $10 ticket can win 100% of the jackpot. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 240,000. For more information, go to www.valottery.com/en/rollingjackpot.

Mr. Gerald said he intends to take care of his family with his winnings.
