Henrico woman wins $1M in Va. Lottery game


When Amanda Spiller of Henrico saw that she’d won the $1 million prize in the Virginia Lottery’s $100 Million Cash Extravaganza game, it didn’t immediately sink in.

“I was in shock. . . complete shock,” she said. “I had to double and triple check.”

She bought the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 2750 Hungary Spring Road in Henrico. She had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $681,000 before taxes. She chose the cash option. The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Although Spiller had no immediate plans for her winnings, her seven-year old daughter had some interesting suggestions.

“She said we have to buy a helicopter and a limousine,” Spiller said with a laugh.

The $100 Million Cash Extravaganza game features prizes ranging from $20 up to $4 million. The $1 million prize that Spiller won is actually the second prize. As the name suggests, the game began with a total of $100 million in prizes available. She is the second $1 million winner to claim, which means two million-dollar tickets remain unclaimed. The chances of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,836,000. The chances of winning any prize are 1 in 2.71.
