Virginia Woman Wins Big – Wins $5000, $500 and $5 Million in Lotteries Just Weeks Apart

by Neha Monga

It won’t be wrong to say that Brenda Gentry is on a winning streak. While we find it impossible to win Rs 100 in lottery, this woman from Troy, Virginia has won thrice in a matter of few weeks.

After winning $5,000 in a Virginia Lottery Scratcher game one week, and $500 shortly thereafter, Ms. Gentry has just won $5 million.

Ms. Gentry said she bought a 50x the Money ticket at a Fortune Food Mart in Charlottesville, scratched it and realized she had won.

But instead of going public with her big win, Ms. Gentry waited until her next day off from work to claim her prize.

Ms. Gentry had a choice of taking the full $5 million in annual payments over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $2,808,989 before taxes. She chose the cash option.

In addition, the store where the ticket was sold received a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

“This has been a little nerve-wracking because I don’t want it to change my life,” she said.

This seems to be the season of winning big. Just a few weeks back a North Carolina woman had won two lotteries in a single day. Read more about it here: Defying all odds, this woman wins lottery twice in one day
