According to a press release from Virginia Lottery, Jalen Taylor used the same three-digit combination (9-6-0) on all 104 tickets he purchased for the November 18, 2021 drawing session.
Each of those tickets won the game’s $500 top prize, scoring him a staggering $52,000.
But more notably, Taylor bought 160 tickets for the January 10 draw and won again.
