Winning the lottery is a dream for many, but one man’s dream has come true for him.
Pensioner Alonzo Coleman, who won $250,000 in the Virginia Million Bank lottery, said that winning numbers came to him in a dream. After the dream, he went to a local store and bought a lottery ticket with the numbers: 13-14-15-16-17-18 and Bonus Ball 19. In the June 11 drawing, his “unusual sequence” of numbers was a winning combination of numbers, lottery officials said in a press release.
“It was hard to believe!” Coleman told lottery officials. “It still hasn’t shocked me yet!”
“Since he split his $2 bet four ways when he bought the ticket, he’s had four sets of numbers,” the press release read. Using the ‘Play Your Way’ feature, he won $250,000 on one of his combinations of numbers.
The odds of winning the $1 million first prize are 1 in 3.8 million.
