Jeff Rowland of Haymarket faced an interesting decision after matching five numbers in the July 7 Cash4Life® drawing. He could have $1,000 a week for the rest of his life or a one-time cash option of $1 million.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” he said as he described the moment he discovered he had won.Rowland chose the numbers on his ticket using a combination of important family dates and figures. He opted for the $1 million cash option.
Karen Deskins of Spotsylvania County won the $1 million grand prize in the Commonwealth 2nd Chance Promotion. How did she find out about her win? After a long day at work, she came home, checked her email and saw the email from the Lottery alerting her to her win!
“I think I read the email like 30 times,” she told Lottery officials as she claimed her prize.
Her advice to others is to always enter a 2nd Chance promotion if one is available. “If there’s an extra chance on the ticket, fill it out, put it in, because you never know,” she said. “You already spent money on the ticket, might as well.”
