Frederick Knox of Hampton said he doesn’t play the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game very often. However, when his wife saw a set of numbers in a dream, she decided to play those numbers in the November 3 night drawing.
All five numbers matched to win the game’s $100,000 top prize. “She just kept looking at the ticket, and she didn’t believe it,” he said as he claimed the prize for both of them.
Mr. Knox, who works as a cook, said he has no plans for the winnings except to pay bills.
