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.
