Aug. 27 (UPI) -- A Virginia man won $160,000 in a lottery drawing with a $5,000 top prize by purchasing 32 tickets with the same number combination.
Wayne Roles of Spotsylvania told Virginia Lottery officials he had a simple reason for dropping $32 to purchase 32 Pick 4 drawing tickets with the same four-digit combination: "When I win I want to win big."
Roles said he bought his tickets at two Fredericksburg stores, Courthouse Gulf and Fas Mart.
The small business owner said he checked his numbers when he got up in the middle of the night for a glass of water Aug. 11 and was unable to get back to sleep after discovering he had won 32 $5,000 top prizes for a total $160,000.
Roles said he will put his winnings toward supporting his business.
