VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A Virginia Beach woman wanted to do something different for her birthday, and it won her $100,000!
Maria Imperial decided to play the Virginia Lottery's Cash 5 game for the first time and she won the top prize. She matched all five winning numbers in the April 1 evening drawing.
The winning ticket was bought at the 7-Eleven at 3673 Virginia Beach Blvd. in Virginia Beach. She used Easy Pick and allowed the computer to randomly select the numbers on her ticket: 7-18-19-24-34.
Imperial said she has no immediate plans for her winnings except to pay bills and possibly renovate her kitchen.
Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11 p.m. The odds of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.
