A Madison Heights man thought it was a joke when he first heard he won $100,000 in a lottery game.
Kevin Blair received a call from his father telling him he had matched the winning numbers of the June 28 drawing in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game. The winning numbers were 3-6-9-12-15.
He was thrilled to learn no one was joking.
“It feels great,” he said while claiming his prize, according to the Virginia Lottery website.
Blair purchased the winning ticket at Goldy’s Truck Plaza on Wards Road in Rustburg. The chances of winning the top prize are 1 in 278,256.
He said the prize will be useful in helping to pay his student loans.
