Latest Virginia Lottery scratch-off winner nets $4 million
“I couldn’t breathe. It feels so surreal. It’s so unbelievable!”
Those are the comments from recent Virginia Lottery winner Jacqueline Duvall who scratched her Money Money Money ticket to reveal she is Virginia’s newest multi-millionaire.
Ms. Duvall, no relation to famous actor Robert Duvall, purchased the ticket at a Quik-E Foods in Forest, Virginia, last week, then went back to the store on Friday to pick up her $4 million from the Virginia Lottery. She could have taken the full $4 million over 30 years, but instead opted for a one-time cash payout of $2,149,572 before taxes.
Ms. Duvall purchased her ticket before a lunch break and scratched off a bit to see if she had won. When she saw the money bag icon, she knew she had won something, perhaps her money back, she initially thought. Incredibly, she put the ticket down and finished her lunch before seeing what she had won.
