A Virginia man is nearly half a million dollars richer after winning the lottery with numbers he said came to him as he slept.
Victor Amole bought four tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game at Fas Mart in Stafford on Jan. 13.
He chose the same numbers — 3, 10, 17, 26 and 31 — for each of the tickets, saying he saw the sequence in a dream.
"I’ve never had a dream like that before," Amole said.
His vision proved to be a reality, as the numbers won him the game’s $100,000 top prize four times over.
Amole, a computer programmer, told the Virginia Lottery he plans to invest his winnings.
