South Boston woman wins $100,000 lottery prize

South Boston News
Dinita Faulkner / July 28, 2017
Dinita Faulkner isn’t likely to forget the numbers 4-6-10-15-27 any time soon. Those are the five numbers with which she won $100,000 in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game.

The South Boston woman matched all five numbers in the July 18 day drawing with a ticket she bought at Short Stop, 3014 Love Shop Road in Halifax.

When asked what she plans to do with her winnings, Ms. Faulkner said she hasn’t had a new car in more than 20 years, so she might just buy a new SUV.

Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The chances of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.
