18-year-old buys first lottery ticket in Virginia Beach, wins $200k
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – An 18-year-old girl had some serious beginner’s luck when purchasing her first lottery ticket.
Samantha Strano, a high school senior from North Carolina, bought a $200,000 winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 841 South Military Highway.
“It’s kind of mind-blowing,” Strano said. “I never expected to do this.”
The teen scratched the ticket while she was in store, but ran to her car when she realized the ticket was a big winner.
Strano is the sixth person to claim the top prize in the game, meaning there are four $200,000 tickets left.
