VINTON, Va. – A Vinton man had a stroke of luck on the unluckiest day of the year - Friday the 13th.
“Friday the 13th is going to be sort of lucky for us from now on,” said Sherry Nunley in reaction to her husband, Danny Nunley, winning $200,000 in Virginia Lottery's Jewel 7s Scratcher game.
Nunley couldn't believe his eyes once he scratched the winning ticket, so he asked his wife to take a second look.
“I don’t think so,” she replied. “We’re not that lucky.”
Nunley is the seventh person to claim the top prize, which means there are three $200,000 tickets still out there.
