Sumerduck woman wins lotto game worth a million

Contributed Photo
Tryshae Younger bought her $30 Million Cash Out ticket in the village of Sumerduck.

The Virginia Lottery winner from Sumerduck thought it was a joke.

When the Tyshae Younger scratched her $30 Million Cash Out ticket and saw that it was a top prize winner, she immediately told her mother and sister, “No, you guys, you can’t trick me!”

But it wasn’t a joke. The ticket really did win the $1 million prize.

Tyshae Younger had the choice of taking the full $1 million over 30 years, or a one-time cash option of $657,030 before taxes. She chose the cash option.

Ms. Younger bought the winning ticket at Sumerduck Trading Co.

“It feels unbelievable,” Ms. Younger said as she claimed her prize Friday . “I was in shock.”

The $30 Million Cash Out game is one of dozens of Scratchers available from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $10 to $1,000,000. She’s the first person to claim the top prize. Three remain unclaimed in that game.

The chances of winning the top prize are 1 in 1.16 million. The chances of winning any prize in this game are 1 in 3.48.

Fauquier County received more than $2 million in lottery funds for K-12 education last fiscal year. The Virginia Lottery generates more than $1.5 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.
