Alexandria Man Plays Pick 4 Game 20 Times – And Wins All Of Them!
9/13/2005 - Richmond, Virginia
Jason Hopkins, III of Alexandria plays Pick 4 and selects the same number every Saturday. On Saturday, September 3, he decided to play the same number 20 times and it was more than worth it.
The number 2-2-1-6 was selected for the night drawing so Mr. Hopkins won a total of $100,000! The ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, 2800 Beacon Hill Road in Alexandria.
“I didn’t check the numbers right away,” the recent retiree told Lottery officials. “It wasn’t until I went back to the store on Tuesday that I realized I’d matched the number!”
Pick 4 drawings are held twice a day, six days a week, Monday through Saturday at 1:59 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The odds of winning the $5000 top prize by matching the numbers in exact order are 1 in 10,000.
All Virginia Lottery profits go to K-12 public school education in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In fiscal year 2005, the Lottery turned over more than $423 million for education.
Wish I could do that sometime. haha
