Carl Joyce would rather not share his exact reaction when he discovered he’d won $100,000 playing the Virginia Lottery.
“I can’t tell you what I said,” he said with a laugh while waiting at the Virginia Lottery’s Roanoke Customer Service Center to receive his check.
The Martinsville man won by matching all five numbers in Cash 5. He bought his ticket at Stop In, located at 1506 Greensboro Road in Martinsville.
He selected the numbers on his ticket, 1-4-5-10-12, using a combination of family birthday months.
The retiree said he has no immediate plans for his winnings except to pay bills.
