Edward Price thought he had been tricked.
He was holding in his hand what appeared to be a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket worth $100,000. His first thought was that it must be fake.
Who got me? he later recalled thinking.
It wasn’t a prank.
Price won the top prize in the Lottery’s Jewel 7’s game.
The Navy petty officer, who lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia, bought the winning ticket in King George, Virginia.
He said he intends to save his winnings and maybe take a trip with his wife Katherine.
