While riding shotgun with her son recently, Hazel Walker was passing time playing Virginia Lottery games on her phone.
That’s when she realized she had won a $240,040 jackpot while playing Marvelous Money: Vegas Nights, lottery officials said in a May 11 news release.
“I just stayed quiet for a while,” Walker told officials. “When we stopped, I showed it to my son and said, ‘Is this real?’”
Walker, who is a school teacher from Virginia Beach, said she doesn’t have any immediate plans for her prize.
“I just need to let it sink in,” she told officials.
