August 2022 Winners

It was a Friday night, but Sherod Hawkins of Palmyra didn’t know that he was about to get paid!

“I was in the store, and I looked up and saw that ticket,” he told Virginia Lottery officials. “I said, ‘Okay, let’s go ahead and get it.’” Mr. Hawkins bought a Payday Bonu$ Scratcher and won the game’s $500,000 top prize.

Of course, you don’t have to visit a Lottery retailer to get a chance to win. Marlen Sandoval of Stephens City won $152,608 playing MONOPOLY Progressive Jackpots while sitting at home. She played the game in the Virginia Lottery mobile app.

“It was just a regular Sunday at home, and I decided to check the app,” she told Lottery officials. “I still can’t believe it!” she said.
