June 12 (UPI) -- A Virginia man's big gamble paid off when he bought 25 identical tickets for the same lottery drawing and won a total $125,000.

Dana Bickham of Suffolk told Virginia Lottery officials he had a food feeling about the number combination 3-5-6-7, so he bought 25 tickets bearing those digits for the May 15 Pick 4 drawing at the 7-Eleven store on Wilroy Road in Suffolk.
