A Virginia man who won a $100,000 prize from a lottery drawing said his winning numbers came from an unusual place — his wife’s dream.
Frederick Knox of Hampton said he very rarely plays the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game, but he decided to give it a shot for the Nov. 3 drawing when a series of numbers came to his wife in a dream: 1-8-14-20-31.
Knox said his wife was dumbfounded when all five numbers on the ticket matched the drawing.
“She just kept looking at the ticket, and she didn’t believe it,” he said.
Knox said he and his wife are planning to pay off their bills with the winnings.
