Woman picks matching numbers 30 times to win lottery game

Virginia lottery winner Deborah Brown

Virginia lottery winner Deborah Brown

Deborah isn't the only lucky lottery victor to hit headlines lately - earlier this week, an unnamed person from SC won $877 million (£665m) in the US Mega Millions draw after kindly letting someone else go ahead of them in the queue in the KC Mart where the victor was bought.

Deborah Brown initially bought 20 tickets for $1 each.

Deborah Brown purchased 30 Pick Four tickets, each with the combination of 1-0-3-1, apparently magic numbers that brought Brown out on top. She made a decision to purchase 10 more tickets later in the day - again going for the number combo of 1-0-3-1, NBC News reports.

On Feb. 11, Brown watched the late-night Pick 4 drawing, and was taken aback when her numbers hit. 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.

The Patriots elected not to pick up Brown's fifth-year option, which set him up for free agency this offseason. He made 186 tackles and 8.5 sacks, peaking at 50 tackles in 2016 and three sacks in 2015 and 2016.

The odds of matching all four numbers in order are 1 in 10,000, the agency said. Later, she went by the same gas station again and picked up 10 more tickets with the numbers.

Brown said she "nearly had a heart attack" after learning of her winnings and her incredible luck.

She's considering using the multiple prizes for home renovations.

"She bought all her tickets at Irongate Shell located at 6437 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield County", a Virginia Lottery spokesman said. "Ms".
