Midlothian woman wins $100,000 in Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game

Eva GreenEva Green of Midlothian was on her way to go grocery shopping when she received an unusual call from her husband.

“Honey, turn that car around!” he said.

He had just checked the winning numbers in the previous day’s Cash 5 drawing and discovered they had won the $100,000 to prize.

“I was driving, so I had to stay calm, cool and collected,” she said.

The ticket that her husband bought at Wawa, 12001 Southshore Pointe Drive in Midlothian, matched all five numbers in the November 16 day drawing. The winning numbers were 1-10-26-29-32. He used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select the numbers on his ticket.

She said the winnings will help with their retirement.

Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The chances of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 2
