From the Virginia Lottery:  Dwayne Burnette says he doesn’t play the lottery very often. But once was all it took when he played the Virginia Lottery’s Bankroll Doubler Scratcher game and won the $250,000 top prize. “I thought it was a $5 winner,” the Lynchburg man said. “Then I sat there for about ten minutes looking at it.”  Mr. Burnette bought the ticket at 460 Mini Mart, located at 22453 Timberlake Road in Lynchburg.  Once he realized it really was a $250,000 winner, he went inside to share the good news with the store owner.  Bankroll Doubler is one of dozens of Scratcher games available from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 up to $250,000. This is the fifth top prize claimed in this game, which means one $250,000 Bankroll Doubler prize remains unclaimed.  Mr. Burnette said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
