Some people go their whole lives without winning the lottery, but not Deborah Brown.
The number combination won the February 11 drawing and each ticket was worth $5,000.
She bought 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers: 1-0-3-1. Later that day, much to her surprise, "1-0-3-1" was read out as the winning sequence - and she netted a $150,000 check. Brown said as the day progressed, she began to notice the same series of numbers appearing everywhere she looked. Adding that she was "really feeling it".
Brown spent $30 in total for the tickets but won $5,000 for each, the highest available prize for a $1 ticket.
Brown says she "nearly had a heart attack".More news: White House mum on if Trump really thinks Dems 'hate' Jews

She recently picked her check for $150,000.
Brown said she does not have "immediate plans" on how to spend her newfound fortune, but she is thinking long-term about using the money for home improvement projects.
The odds of matching all four numbers in order is 1 in 10,000 according to the Virginia lottery.
"She's considering some home renovation", the Virginia Lottery said in a statement.
