Lottery winner left speechless when ticket reveals big jackpot — until she gets home
Crystal Fitzpatrick made a quick stop at a store in Virginia before heading home after work — a stop that first made her speechless, then left her screaming once she got home.
Fitzpatrick bought four lottery scratch-off tickets, including a 10X the Money one, after work, which won her $100,000, lottery officials said in a March 21 news release.
She bought her lucky tickets at the Old County Store in Ridgeway, according to lottery officials.
“We were quiet at the store. I screamed when I got home!” she told lottery officials. “I’m still in disbelief!”
Fitzpatrick, who lives in Ridgeway, won the top prize in the game. The odds of winning $100,000 are 1 in 1,713,600, according to lottery officials.
Ridgeway is about 60 miles south of Roanoke.
