Henry County woman wins $100,000 in Virginia Lottery scratcher

Posted: Updated:
HENRY COUNTY, VA -

A Henry County woman is $100,000 richer, thanks to a gift from a friend.

The Virginia Lottery says Angela Bryant had a friend buy two "10X the Money" scratcher tickets, one for him and one for Bryant.  When Bryant scratched her ticket off, it turned out to be one of the five grand prize winning tickets!

"I just happened to get the good one," Bryant told lottery workers.  "I'm very, very surprised."

The Lottery says the winning ticket was bought in Fieldale, at the Connection Market & Grill on River Road.

So will her friend receive any of the winnings?  "I have to think about that," Bryant told lottery workers.

Only one of the five grand prize winning tickets remains unclaimed.
