— The biggest lottery win in Richmond’s history is still going strong, with winners in more than 500 games making $4.9 million, more than double the amount of cash that would be earned by an average ticket buyer.
The winning ticket price is $1,000, but winning the jackpot requires a winning ticket.
In the past, the highest jackpot had been $2,500, and even $2 million has been a stretch.
The winner is determined by the number of winning tickets sold.
If more than 50 tickets are sold, then the winner is declared, but if less than 50, then there is a tiebreaker.
The winner will have to buy his ticket on-site in the rouge casino at the Richmond Coliseum, where the game was held last year.
The rouge is also available in many bars, restaurants and other businesses.
When tickets are bought online, the winner receives a $200 gift card to use at other casinos.
The winner also has to pay a $100 service charge to the casinos.
The winnings are deposited into a lottery account at the casino.
If the winner pays back the $200 he or she receives, the prize is distributed to the winner’s cardholder.
The winning ticket was worth about $4,700 when it was purchased.
The lottery will be closed on April 15.
