Prince Edward man wins $1,000 per week for life

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Anthony Boyce of Pamplin found out he was a big winner in the Virginia Lottery’s Win For Life game when he showed his ticket to a store clerk. 

“He told me I won the whole enchilada,” Mr. Boyce later told Lottery officials. “I asked him, ‘What’s the whole enchilada?’ It was $1,000 a week for life.”

His ticket matched the first six numbers in the November 4, 2009, Win For Life drawing. He bought it at Fas Mart, located at Highways 15 and 460 in Farmville. On November 17, Mr. Boyce returned to receive his first check from Virginia Lottery Deputy Director Richard Williams. The store also received a $10,000 bonus for selling a top-prize Win For Life ticket. 

The winning numbers for that drawing were 4-9-19-26-34-36. The Free Ball was 23, but it wasn’t needed to win. The numbers on the ticket were selected using Easy Pick. Boyce, who retired after 24 years in the Navy, said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
     
This is the fifth Win For Life top-prize win in Virginia this year – and the 27th in Virginia since the game began in February 2006. Win For Life drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11:00. The chances of winning the top prize are 1 in 5,245,786. Other prizes in the game range from $2 to $52,000.
