Virginia Scratcher Wins $500,000


As Michael Cole scratched his scratch ticket from the Virginia Lottery, he began to suspect it might be a really big winner. The Waverly man decided that was a good time to get away from the other customers in the store.

So I eased around the side of the store to finish scratching it, he said.

That’s when he discovered he was right: he’d just won the game’s $500,000 prize.

I went back inside and asked the clerk to quietly verify it was a winner, he said.

It was.
