Stafford man wins $50,000 prize twice in the same Virginia Lottery drawing
A Stafford man bought two different Cash 5 tickets from two different stores for the same drawing. Eddie Lee Hull selected the same five numbers on both tickets, 9-17-22-27-34, a combination of family birthdays. Both tickets won the game’s $50,000 prize, for total winnings of $100,000.
It happened in the April 21 night drawing. The Stafford man bought his winning tickets at the 7-Eleven at 280 Garrisonville Road and another 7-Eleven down the street at 378 Garrisonville Road. Hull, who is retired, said he has no immediate plans for his winnings except to pay bills.
The Virginia Lottery says Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11 p.m. The odds of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.
