From the Virginia Lottery: Crystal Payne was anxious to check the Lottery numbers because there was a high Powerball jackpot. It turns out the Roanoke woman did not hit the Powerball jackpot. Instead, she discovered she’d won $100,000 in the Virginia Lottery’s $1,000,000 Money Ball game.  “I thought, ‘This doesn’t look right… because it looks like my numbers!’” she said as she claimed her prize. She matched all five numbers in the January 24 drawing. She bought the winning ticket at Roanoke Tobacco, 3660 Colonial Avenue in Roanoke. She selected her numbers using family birthdays. The winning numbers were 2-4-8-10-26. The Gold Million Dollar Money Ball did not come up in that drawing. If it had, the top prize would have increased to $1 million.  Ms. Payne said she has no plans for her winnings except to pay bills, and possibly take a trip somewhere.
