“I scratched it and then I said, ‘It is real,’” Ms. Carter told lottery officials.
You might say Dorothy Carter knows a “good deal” when she sees one. When she played the Virginia Lottery’s Good Deal Scratcher game, the Marshall resident won the $150,000 top prize.
“I scratched it and then I said, ‘It is real,’” Ms. Carter told lottery officials. “Then the real excitement began!”
Ms. Carter said she has no immediate plans for her winnings.
“I still don’t believe it,” she said as she claimed her prize.
Good Deal (Game #1394) is one of dozens of scratchers offered by the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 all the way up to $150,000. This is the third top prize claimed in this game, which means three top-prize tickets remain unclaimed.
Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of it products, the Virginia Lottery generated more than $486.5 million for Virginia’s public schools in fiscal.
