RICHMOND, Va. -- Some people have all the luck. On February 11, 2019, that person was Deborah Brown.

Brown won the Virginia Lottery 30 times that day.

She initially bought 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers: 1-0-3-1

She said she just had a feeling.

"A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers," she explained.

Later that day, she bought 10 more tickets with the same numbers.

Sure enough, that night the winning numbers were: 1-0-3-1

"I nearly had a heart attack!" she said.

Each of her 30 plays won the $5,000 top prize.

She recently picked her check for $150,000.

"She bought all her tickets at Irongate Shell located at 6437 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield County," a Virginia Lottery spokesperson said. "Ms. Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she’s considering some home renovation."
