North Carolina man wins $65,800 in Virginia Pick 4 drawing

Steven Granger is amassing a collection of those big ceremonial Virginia Lottery winners' checks. He received his latest addition when he claimed $65,800 in the Virginia Lottery's October 13 Pick 4 day drawing.

The Henderson, North Carolina, man did it by matching the winning number combination 5-1-1-7 on 15 tickets. He wagered "exact order" on 11 tickets and won $5,000 on each. He wagered "50/50" on four tickets, winning $2,700 on each.

Mr. Granger has had an amazing string of luck in Virginia Lottery games. This is the sixth time he's collected a major Virginia Lottery prize. Many of those wins have been with the number combination 5-1-1-7. He selected the numbers to win the same amount, $65,800, twice in 2010. In September 2009, he won $900,000 in Cash 5.

"I'm just lucky," he said as he claimed his most recent prize. "I've always been lucky. My wife claims it's because I married her."

Mr. Granger, who works in real estate, bought all of his winning tickets at his favorite store: Bracey Mini Mart, 3230 Highway 903 in Bracey, Virginia.

Pick 4 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The chances of matching all four numbers in exact order are 1 in 10,000.

Thanks to JordanT1021 for the tip.

Playing the same number worked for him. Looks like he plays the same amount on a regular basis.

                That ol' boy got a horseshoe stuck somewhere.

                Hope he keeps winnin' in Va.

                Apparently he's got sense enough to stay out of TN.

                  Congrats to him. That's a sweet take.

                  But if he's playing that regularly... 15 tickets a drawing, two drawings a day... I'm no math wiz, but that's over 10,000 a year.

                    You have a deep love for TN. It has to be.

                    You don't even go after the libs anyore like you go after the TN lottery lol

                    They should contact you rdgnr to do some damage control because after reading what you have to say about TN lottery,

                    I dont think I'd ever try my luck there.

                    Anywho I have read about the VA guy before and God bless him to keep winning because the rest of us aint.

                    It's a futile effort.

                      I'd say he's making a tidy profit then.  (He won $65,800, and can write off the cost of the losing tickets against his winnings on his tax return.)

                        I love reading stories like this.

                        These stories continue to let me know that I can do it also. It's just a matter of time.

                        Congratulations to the winner.

                          Oh, make no mistake, I love Tennessee, this is God's Country.

                          I just don't care for the way our lottery officials run roughshod over the concerns of the players.

                          I'm not real crazy about our RINO governor either. He was in cahoots with Bloomberg's anti-gun movement till he ran for Gov and became pro-gun out of the blue.

                            I play 5 or 10 dollars straight occasionally on our Daily 4. It's a little expensive to play every day. With our Cash 5 the jackpot is only about 20k to 25k, with odds of 435,897 to 1. That sucks. For 5 bucks straight, you can win 25k, that's not parimutuel, and odds of 10,000 to 1.

                            Congrats to the winner!
