DINWIDDLE COUPLE WINS $200,000 IN "DOGS PLAYING POKER" GME
February 27, 2016
It’s easy to understand Wanda James’ skepticism when her husband William told her, “I can’t believe it, but I think we just won $200,000!”
 
“Billy, that’s not funny,” she replied.
 
But it was true.
 
The North Dinwiddie couple won the top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Dogs Playing Poker Scratcher game.
He bought the winning ticket at Food Lion, 4320 Westgate Drive in Petersburg.
 
Dogs Playing Poker is one of dozens of Scratcher games from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 to $200,000. This is the first top prize claimed in this game, which means three $200,000 tickets remain unclaimed. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 795,600. The odds of winning any prize in this game are 1 in 4.32.
Mr. James said they intend to save their winnings for retirement.
 
When it comes to education, the Virginia Lottery is game.  In fact, it’s the reason we play.  We generate more than $1.4 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.  Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products, the Virginia Lottery generated nearly $534 million for Virginia’s public schools in Fiscal Year 2015. We know the Virginia Lottery is a great place to work, but don’t take our word for it. The Richmond Times-Dispatch named the Lottery a 2015 Top Workplace.
