We all know how holding down and working a full-time job can be tiring. However, when you add on the fact you have a 7 year old daughter it can be even more exhausting – on you and your finances! It’s the age old wish that we all have made but never think would be possible. “Oh, if only I could just win the lottery, but like that will ever happen”. Well, in the case of single mother Amanda Miller, it did happen!
The Henrico mother-of-one recently scooped $1milllion in the Virginia Lottery’s £100million Cash Extravaganza game. The lottery features prizes ranging from $20 up to $4 million. The $1 million prize that Ms. Spiller won is actually the second prize. As the name suggests, the game began with a total of $100 million in prizes available. She is the second $1 million winner to claim, which means two million-dollar tickets remain unclaimed.
“I was in shock…complete shock! I had to triple check” said Spiller to Lottery officials. she purchased the ticket at a 7-eleven convenience store in Richmond. When asked if she had any specific ideas on how to spend her wonderful winnings she was unsure. A matter no problem though for her daughter, who suggested “a helicopter and a limousine”. Spiller had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $681,000 before taxes. She chose the cash option.
The chances of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,836,000. The chances of winning any prize are 1 in 2.71. With odds of winning some cash being very possible indeed, the Virginia based lottery game may be well trying your luck in! Who knows, maybe you could be the next Amanda Spiller? There’s a game out there for anyone to play, if it can pay off for this hard-working single mother – then it just may pay off for you!
