“Hot” Winner in Virginia Scratches For $100,000

Lottery Balls

Harold Campbell of Bristol, Tennessee, didn’t get overly excited when he won $100,000 in the Virginia Lottery.

He didn’t need to. The store clerk was excited enough for both of them.

He checked it and then he waved it around, Campbell told Lottery officials as he claimed his prize. I saw that $100,000 and I didn’t know what to do.

The winning ticket was a “Hot $100,000” Scratcher, which  Campbell bought in Bristol, Virginia.

Campbell, who is retired, said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
