Man buys 32 identical lottery tickets to win $160,000
SPOTSYLVANIA, VA -- A small business owner from Virginia won $160,000 in a lottery drawing by purchasing 32 tickets with the same four-digit number combination.
Wayne Roles of Spotsylvania paid $32 to purchase 32 tickets, each with a $5,000 top prize.
“When I win I want to win big,” Roles told Virginia Lottery officials Friday.
On August 11, his selected combination of 1-5-2-2 was drawn in the Virginia Lottery’s night drawing.
Roles discovered he won when he got up in the middle of the night for a glass of water. He said he didn’t get back to sleep that night.
Roles said he plans to use his winnings to support his business.
