Barbara Hurst was playing Virginia Lottery games online with her daughter on a Sunday when she noticed that the Monopoly Progressive Jackpots game had an unusually high jackpot. It was playing this game that Hurst won the $424,330 jackpot.
“We looked at each other. We didn’t say anything,” Hurst’s daughter Lisa recalled. “The look we gave each other said it all.”
