The Virginia lottery’s winning ticket was sold at Price’s Minute Market, managed by Imran Naseer. The winner has 180 days to claim the prize before it expires. He or she must simply present the winning ticket with signature to a Virginia Lottery location. There are seven state-wide.
The Virginia Lottery is located in Richmond, Va. Martinsville, Va., is a sleepy, but idyllic town located 175 miles east of Richmond. Other winners in the state this year include Recardo Mills of Chesapeake, who won $250,000 on a scratch ticket. Mills had originally gone to a Chesapeake 7-Eleven with winnings from previous tickets to purchase the big ticket.
In Virginia Beach, Va., Vivian Jeter, didn’t win the Virginia Lottery, rather she actually wasn't very lucky the first time around. Jeter played the Virgina Lottery’s Corvette Cash Scratcher game and came out a loser. However, she entered it into a Second-Chance Sweepstakes and won top prize – a 2010 Corvette Convertible.
For hardcore, lotto players, the Virginia Lottery seems to be a good bet.
