Lynchburg Man Wins $250,000 in VA Lottery

Lynchburg - The $250,000 top prize in the Bankroll Double Scratcher game was won by Dwayne Burnette after purchasing his Virginia Lottery ticket. "I thought it was a $5 winner," the Lynchburg man said. "Then I sat there for about ten minutes looking at it." He bought the ticket at 460 Mini Mart, located at 22453 Timberlake Road in Lynchburg. Once Burnette realized that he was the winner of the $250,000 prize, he went inside to share the good news with the store owner. Burnette said that he doesn't play the lottery very often, but once was all it took to win. Bankroll Doubler is one of dozens of Scratcher games available from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 up to $250,000. This is the fifth top prize claimed in this game, which means that one $250,000 Bankroll Doubler prize has not been claimed. Burnette said that he has no immediate plans for his winnings.{}
