APPOMATTOX, Va. – An Appomattox woman had to go back to the grocery store on Sunday since they didn’t have bananas the day before, and while she was there, she bought a lotto ticket. To her surprise, she ended up winning $300,000, according to the Virginia Lottery.

We’re told Nancy Webb doesn’t usually play to win. After she bought her ticket, officials said she sat in the Kroger parking lot and scratched it – then realized she won The 100X the Money’s second top-prize.

The Virginia Lottery says prizes for the game range from $30 to $5 million, and there are three second-top-prizes of $300,000. Now that Webb has won, two second-top-prizes remain.

Officials say the chances of winning the top prize in the game are 1 in 2,652,000.
