Having a “Blast,” Virginia Player Wins $1 Million

A hand is scratching a lottery ticket

Terry King of Brookneal, Virginia, is a hard-working man, according to people who know him. The small-business-owner is also a lucky person. He won the top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s $1,000,000 Cash Blast Scratcher game.

He had a choice of taking the full $1 million over 25 years or a one-time cash option of $628,000 before taxes. He chose the cash option.

He is the third player to claim the top prize in $1,000,000 Cash Blast, which means five million-dollar-winning tickets remain unclaimed in the state.

So the next time I am in Virginia…
