PETERSBURG, Va. (WWBT) - A Petersburg man won $200,000 with 40 tickets with the same four numbers in the June 8 Pick 4 night drawing.

Michael Raines bought all 40 plays at Little Food Market, located at 908 Halifax Street. Raines, who works as a dump truck operator, said he played the number, ‘1220′ to commemorate the day his mother passed away.
