A Virginia woman won the lottery 30 times in one day after purchasing 30 tickets that netted her $150,000.
Deborah Brown bought 20 Pick 4 tickets from the Virginia Lottery, and all of them had the same four digits for the same drawing on February 11.
‘A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers,’ she said.

Brown said she started the day with the 20 tickets and a little while later she bought 10 more plays with the same number combination: 1-0-3-1.
When that number combination was drawn in the February 11 night drawing, each of her 30 plays won the $5,000 top prize, which brought her total to $150,000.
‘I nearly had a heart attack!’ Brown, of Richmond, told representatives of the Virginia Lottery as she claimed her prize.
All of the tickets were purchased at the Irongate Shell located at 6437 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield County.
Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she’s considering some home renovation.
Pick 4 drawings are held daily at 1.59pm and 11pm.

The top prize for a $1 play is $5,000. The chances of matching all four numbers in exact order are 1 in 10,000.
Now in its 30th year, the Virginia Lottery generates more than $1.6million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.
The city of Richmond received more than $17.3million in Lottery funds for K-12 education last fiscal year.
