Vivian Weaver was celebrating her granddaughter’s birthday, but she’s the one who ended up with the biggest prize.

The Bealeton woman had driven to Fredericksburg for the birthday dinner. Later, when she was driving back home, she stopped for gas at the 7-Eleven at 5545 Germana Highway, outside Locust Grove.

Along with gas, she picked up a $500,000 Ca$h Cha$er ticket from the Virginia Lottery. Later, at home, her daughter scratched the ticket and quickly realized this was no ordinary ticket.

“You’ve won big, Mom,” she said.

Her daughter was right. The ticket was worth $500,000.

The $500,000 Ca$h Cha$er game is one of dozens of Scratchers offered by the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $10 up to that $500,000 top prize. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 652,800. The odds of winning any prize in this game are 1 in 3.74. This is the second top prize claimed in this game, which means one more remains unclaimed.

Ms. Weaver said she intends to take care of her family with her winnings.
