Deborah Brown won the Pick 4 Lottery prize of $150,000 in February 2019

The New York Daily News reports Deborah Brown accomplished the improbable feat after she bought 30 Pick-4 tickets with the same combination.

"A couple of times during the day, I saw those numbers", she said.

And she was right to do so, because low and behold, when the lottery was drawn later that day those numbers rolled out meaning that all of her 30 tickets scooped the $5,000 (£3,841) top prize - 30 times, netting her an impressive $150,000 in total.

"I almost had a heart attack", Brown told the Virginia Lottery.

As it turns out, her instincts were correct: all thirty of her lottery tickets were winners.

Valentine's Day marked the one-year anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Florida. However in the upcoming federal election, there are some beacons of hope for climate action.

On the night of the February 11 Pick 4 drawing, each of Brown's 30 plays won the top prize, netting her $150,000.

Each winning ticket earned her a $5,000 prize.

"Brown said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, but she's considering some home renovation".

Sure enough, that night the winning numbers were 1-0-3-1.

Robert Bailey, 67, took the prize after plaiyng the number he played religiously at a deli in Harlem. "I jumped out of the auto because it was raining, ran in there, played my numbers and ran out". Brown said as the day progressed, she began to notice the same series of numbers appearing everywhere she looked. After taxes Bailey walked away with $125.3 million - the fourth-largest payoff in US history and the top win ever in New York State.
