APPOMATTOX, Va. (WDBJ/Gray News) - A Virginia woman recently hit a lottery jackpot thanks to a grocery store running out of bananas.
According to the Virginia Lottery, Nancy Webb went shopping over the weekend to pick up some bananas along with a few groceries, but the store was out of the fruit.
So, she went back to the store the following day and purchased bananas plus a lottery ticket.
And that 100X The Money ticket ended up returning a cool $300,000.
Webb told lottery officials she found out she was a winner after scratching the ticket in the parking lot of the Kroger store.
Officials said the lucky winner told them that she doesn’t play the lottery very often.
