CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Author's note: The video above is about a woman who repeatedly won the Virginia Lottery. It aired on March 12, 2019.
When Chesapeake resident Keith Boone saw he won a lottery prize, he wasn't too shocked. After all, he had won before.
They say that some people are just lucky.
“I had a hunch,” he said.
Boone matched all five numbers in the Cash 5 with EZ match game, which is sponsored by the Virginia Lottery.
He originally bought the ticket on May 28 at a Rite Aid in Chesapeake, according to a news release. Then, he found out he won the jackpot, which was $712,544 in total.
“I remained calm,” he said. “I didn’t jump up and down...I just think positive!"
This win has brought Boone full circle. Back in 1999, he won $100,000 from the old version of the same Cash 5 game.
Congratulations, Keith! Maybe playing every 23 years will bring you success.
