Dorothy Hughes is no stranger to April Fool’s jokes.
That probably explains why,when she realized she’d won $500,000 in the Virginia Lottery’s Millionaire Mania game,her initial reaction was,This is not an April Fool’s joke!
The Dumfries, Virginia woman bought her winning ticket in Dumfries.
I had no idea I was going to win with that ticket, Hughes said as she claimed her prize.
I thought something was wrong. I couldn’t believe it.
In Millionaire Mania,$500,000 is actually the second prize. The game’s top prize is $2 million.
Hughes,who runs a daycare business,said she hopes to buy a house with her winnings.
