Lottery player shocked after seeing winning numbers. ‘Could this really be possible?’

When Leslie Williams went onto the Virginia Lottery website to check the winning numbers of the Cash 5 game, he was shocked.

The Alexandria resident saw the numbers he had played, then the winning five numbers – and they were a perfect match.

“Could this really be possible?” he told lottery officials in an Aug. 30 release.

Those five numbers gave Williams the $1,063,690 jackpot prize.

The shock made him let out a “quiet scream,” he told officials.

The winning numbers for the June 18 drawing were 1, 20, 24, 26 and 35, and the odds of matching all five numbers are 1-in-749,398, according to the release.

Alexandria is about 10 miles south of Washington, D.C.
