John Wilson is a regular customer at Nelson’s Feed in Dinwiddie County. Virginia.
In fact, he’s there so often, playing his Cash 5 numbers, that store manager James Van Cleef decided to play the game along with him.
I’m going to start playing those numbers with you, because I know them by heart, Van Cleef told his customer.
On July 28, those numbers, 5-24-26-30-33, were drawn. Since both men had winning tickets, they each won $100,000!
I feel happy now happiest day of my life! Mr. Wilson told Virginia Lottery officials as he claimed his prize.
Nelson’s Feed, which is located in Ford, is no stranger to big Virginia Lottery wins. Just a few weeks earlier, Sylvia Rolfe took the $1 million top prize in the Virginia’s Million Dollar Cash Bonanza Scratcher game with a ticket she bought there.
I think it’s going to put our store on the map, said Van Cleef.
