RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — “I scratched the amount, and there it was!” said Alvin Edwards, now $500,000 richer after winning the top prize on a $10 scratcher in Henrico.
Edwards said he was on his way home from work on Friday, Nov. 12, when he bought the winning card from E & C VA, located at 4050 Spring Oak Road.
According to Virginia Lottery, Edwards claimed the first of three top prizes for the Winfall game, which means there are two more top-prize tickets out there.
“I never thought it would happen to me!” he told Lottery officials. “It feels like a dream!”
The chance of winning top-prize with this particular card is 1 in 1,550,440.
