A LUCKY lottery player has won prizes at odds of more than a million to one four times in a row.
Krystle Smith from Virginia won $100, another $100 and $200 with some scratch cards before hitting the $100,000 jackpot – her biggest win yet.
She bought the winning White Ice Crossword 5X ticket at a petrol station in Suffolk.
According to the Virginia Lottery, Smith won the fifth of six $100,000 in the White Ice Crossword 5X series.
The winner told officials: “It’s kind of surreal. I said to my fiancee, ‘Babe, I think I just won a lot of money’.”
The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 1,224,000.
There is a 1 in 3.83 chance that players can win any prize.
Players are urged to verify their tickets as a grand prize will not be claimed.
Meanwhile, in January, Mike “Lucky” Luciano won $1 million on a $20 scratch card.
It was his fourth lottery win since 1999 and his prize pool is now a whopping $4.6 million.
Last year, 55-year-old Luciano won $500,000 from Pennsylvania’s state lottery, the Daily Times reported.
He also won $3 million in 2016 and $100,000 in 1999.
Luciano said he bought the Jan. 6 ticket from a store along Pennsylvania Route 764 after stopping to play a video game slot enjoyed by his late mother.
He said, “I played it for my mother.”
After winning the $500,000 prize, Luciano said he felt “blessed” to have won it three times, but admitted he was addicted to gambling.
His wife, Shelly, said she believed her husband often won because of his “giving nature”.
She said at the time: “He wins because he’s such a giving person. He’s always helping people and I think that’s how it comes back.”
A string of big lottery wins have made headlines in recent months.
Oregon gambler Wilbur Brown was stunned to discover he’d won an $8.9 million jackpot after checking a ticket he’d bought weeks earlier and forgotten.
Massachusetts’ Nicholas Fulmer won a $1 million prize after buying a ticket while stopping at a Market Basket store for a ginger ale.
North Carolina’s Steven Richter claimed he hit the jackpot after it was revealed the winning number matched his mother’s maiden name.
He bought The Cash scratch card at a local gas station and initially thought he had won $100.
But the zeros kept coming when he called his wife to share the amazing news.
And Juan Hernandez defied odds of at least 3.3 million to one as he won a $10 million prize for the second time in three years.
