LYNCHBURG, Va. – After first thinking she'd won $100, a Lynchburg woman was thrilled to realize her winnings were actually more than 100 times that amount.

Kimberly Carwile was waiting for a ride when she scratched the Frogger ticket from the Virginia Lottery she’d just bought and won $150,000, according to the Virginia Lottery.

She purchased her ticket at the Greenview Stop at 1209 Greenview Drive in Lynchburg. 

She said she plans to take care of her family with her winnings and maybe buy a new car.

Frogger, one of dozens of Scratcher games available from the Virginia Lottery, features prizes ranging from $5 up to $150,000. The odds of winning the top prize in this game are one in 454,629.
