According to a Pick 4 lottery spokesman in a statement to The New York Times, Brown's success is all the more shocking considering how the odds of winning the Pick 4 lottery are reportedly about 1 in 10,000.
Some people have all the luck.
The victor, Deborah Brown, said she purchased 20 Pick 4 tickets at a gas station in Chesterfield County, choosing the numbers 1-0-3-1 on February 11, WTVR reported Friday. She made a decision to purchase 10 more tickets later in the day - again going for the number combo of 1-0-3-1, NBC News reports.
A Virginia woman had the lucky streak of a lifetime and it earned her a $150,000 lottery win in the Virginia lottery after playing the same number times 30 times over, NBC Newsreports.
"A family member gave me the numbers over 25 years ago and I faithfully play them", he said.
Brown spent $30 in total for the tickets but won $5,000 for each, the highest available prize for a $1 ticket. She recently picked her check for $150,000.
Brown originally bought 20 tickets for $1 each with her winning number combination but she had a hunch and later bought an additional 10 tickets.
