Nice Second Prize: $500,000


If you’d seen Wendy Querry when she discovered she’d won $500,000 in the Virginia Lottery, you probably wouldn’t have known it. Her immediate reaction was silence.

I didn’t tell anyone, the Spring Grove woman said as she claimed her prize. I haven’t shared it with anyone but my husband.

It happened when she stopped for gas in Chester. She bought a 50X the Money ticket and scratched it right there in the store.

Querry actually won the second prize.

The top prize is $5 million. She is the first $500,000 winner to claim, which means the other three half-million-dollar tickets are still unclaimed.

Querry, who is an accounting technician, said she has no immediate plans for her winning
