Sharing is caring.
A group of friends is splitting $1 million they won from the Virginia Lottery.
Every week, Giang Kim Nguyen of Arlington purchases tickets from the lottery’s Mega Millions game for himself and 10 friends.
He recently bought a ticket from the Giant Food at 4309 Dale Boulevard in Dale City. It matched the first five numbers in an October 23 drawing.
The possibility of matching five Mega Millions numbers is 1 in 12,607,306.
Soon afterward, De Hieu Vo of Woodbridge notified the group that they had won through a text message.
“They all thought I was kidding,” Vo said.
It was one of two $1 million lottery tickets sold in Virginia.
Drawings for the Mega Millions occur at 11 p.m. on Tuesday’s and Friday’s. They can be viewed on various TV stations and on the Virginia Lottery website.
