Lisa Taylor was watching her three Print n’ Play Rolling Jackpot tickets come out of the printer at the store. The first ticket came up with the jackpot amount on it: $127,229. But then a strange thing happened: Her second ticket showed the minimum jackpot amount on it: $50,000. She knew what that meant. “Somebody hit it!” she recalled thinking. The jackpot had been won somewhere in Virginia at that exact moment and reset back to the beginning amount. But the Norfolk woman didn’t realize that she was the one who had won the jackpot. It wasn’t until she carefully examined the ticket that she realized her good fortune. “I want to cry, but I can’t cry,” she told Virginia Lottery officials as she claimed her prize. Print ‘n Play Rolling Jackpot is a Virginia-only instant-win game that has a starting jackpot of $50,000. The jackpot increases with each ticket sold until the jackpot is won. The game has three price points: $2, $5 and $10. The $2 ticket can win 20% of the jackpot, the $5 ticket can win 50% of the jackpot, and the $10 ticket can win 100% of the jackpot. For each price point, the odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 240,000. For more information, go to www.valottery.com/en/rollingjackpot.
