Disputanta man wins $1-million six weeks after winning $100,000

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - You might say Rick Reynolds of Disputanta is really on a winning streak. In April, he won the $100,000 top prize in the Virginia Lottery's 100X the Money Scratcher game. That turned out to be just the warm-up. Six weeks later, he scratched a $120 Million Cash Blowout ticket and won the top prize of $1-million.

"I showed the ticket to the clerk and asked her if I was reading it right," he told Lottery officials. "She almost passed out. She grabbed my hand and it was shaking as she said I'd won a million dollars."

Mr. Reynolds became the ninth player to claim the top prize of $1-million in the $120 Million Cash Blowout game. He bought the winning ticket at Spencer's Express at 5144 Centralia Road in Chesterfield. Today he returned to the store to receive his check from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto.

Although the Lottery offers a cash option for the top prize, Mr Reynolds chose to take the 25-year annuity. The store that sold the winning ticket also received a $10,000 bonus form the Virginia Lottery.
