STERLING, Va. (Gray News) – A man in Virginia is celebrating after a big win playing a lottery scratcher game – but it’s not the first time his family has seen good fortune.
In 2019, Terry Mudd won $1 million playing a Virginia Lottery scratcher game.
Not to be outdone, his brother Danny Mudd recently bought a scratch-off ticket and won the $3 million top prize.
“I couldn’t believe it!” Danny Mudd told lottery officials as he claimed his prize.
Danny Mudd decided to take the one-time cash payout option of $1,875,000 before taxes.
“It hasn’t sunk in yet,” he said. “I’m just smiling!”
