Beverly Cicioni was waiting for her mother in the grocery store. Since the Locust Grove woman found herself standing next to the Virginia Lottery’s Lottery Express machine, she decided to buy a couple of tickets.

Later, at home she scratched the tickets and made what she thought was an exciting discovery.

“I thought I’d won $10,000,” she later said. “I was beyond elated!”

However, Ms. Cicioni had misread the ticket. Instead of winning $10,000, she’d actually won $100,000!

“I was moved to tears!” she said.

She won big in the Virginia Lottery’s $4,000,000 Spectacular Riches game. She bought the ticket at Wegmans, 2281 Carl D. Silver Parkway in Fredericksburg.

The $4,000,000 Spectacular Riches (Game #1738) Scratcher is one of dozens of games available from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $20 up to $4 million.  The $100,000 prize won by Ms. Cicioni is actually the game’s third prize. Along with a $4 million top prize, the game features a $1 million second prize.

The chances of winning the $4 million top prize in this game are 1 in 1,305,600. The chances of winning any prize are 1 in 2.81.

Ms. Cicioni said her winnings will help to finally acquire a service dog to assist her nine-year-old granddaughter.

When it comes to education, the Virginia Lottery is game.  In fact, it’s the reason we play.  We generate more than $1.6 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.  Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products, the Virginia Lottery generated a record $588 million for Virginia’s public schools in Fiscal Year 2016.
