RICHMOND, Va. (WVLT/WTKR) -- Some people go their whole lives without winning the lottery, but not Deborah Brown.

According to WTKR, Brown won the Virginia Lottery 30 times on Feb. 11.

She bought 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers: 1-0-3-1. She said she just had a feeling about them. "A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers," she said.

Later that same day, she bought 10 more tickets with the same numbers. That night, the winning numbers were 1-0-3-1.

“I nearly had a heart attack!” she said.

Each of her 30 plays won the top prize of $5,000. She recently went to pick up her $150,000, WTKR reported.

A Virginia Lottery representative said, "Ms. Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she’s considering some home renovation.”
