 May 2022 Winners

In May, over 1,550 retail players won $1,000 or more, which totaled over $14 million in prize winnings, and over 880 online-game players won $1,000 or more, which totaled over $3.3 million in prize winnings!

Mickey Shelton always stops for coffee and a Lottery ticket or two on his way to work. A recent such stop resulted in him purchasing a 10 Years of Ca$h Scratcher.

“I had to take a double take!” he told Lottery officials. “I showed it to the clerk who said I’d won $600. I said, ‘No, it’s more than that!’”

Mr. Shelton was correct. He won the game’s top prize and had the choice of either $5,000 per month for 10 years or a one-time cash option of $566,044 before taxes. He selected the cash option.

Ken McConnell of Virginia Beach was at home doing some remodeling work, so he went to a store to look at some flooring. On his way out, he stopped next door at the Food Lion and grabbed a Print ‘n Play Rolling Jackpot ticket.

That ticket turned out to be a $178,311 winner.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!” he told Lottery officials. Mr. McConnell said his winnings will go to pay bills, and of course, pay for the remodeling project.
