Julia Townsend of Scottsville might want to thank her coworker for her recent $100,000 win in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game.
When she heard her friend talking about winning in Cash 5, Ms. Townsend decided to give the game a try. She had never played it before. She bought a ticket and matched all five numbers to win the game’s top prize.
She bought the winning ticket at Vintage Market, 3103 Scottsville Road in Charlottesville. She used Easy Pick and allowed the computer to pick her numbers at random for the June 24 night drawing. The winning numbers were 3-9-14-20-22.
“I couldn’t believe it. I really couldn’t believe it,” she said as she claimed her prize.
Ms. Townsend, who works in health care in Charlottesville, said she has no immediate plans for her winnings.
Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The chances of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.
