A Virginia man won $100,000 from a lottery drawing with a top prize of $5,000 by taking a gamble on 20 identical tickets.

Tony Miles of South Boston told Virginia Lottery officials he bought 20 tickets for the Aug. 22 Pick 4 night drawing and each ticket bore the number combination 1-9-2-9.

The tickets, purchased from Centerville Mart, matched all four numbers in the drawing and each earned Miles a $5,000 top prize — a total jackpot of $100,000.

Miles said his only immediate plan for his winnings is to pay off some bills.
