Christiansburg man wins lottery jackpot

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Travis Ratcliffe from Christiansburg is now $100,000 richer thanks to the Lottery’s eXTRA Chances Promotion.

His ticket was drawn from more than 265,000 entries in the June 6 drawing to win $100,000.

“I never in a million years thought it would be me,” he said.

Mr. Ratcliffe, a construction worker, said he started entering his non-winning tickets in the eXTRA Chances Promotion about two months ago, after hearing that someone nearby had won a large prize.

He said he hopes to use his winnings to take his family on a nice vacation.

The next grand prize drawing will be held on July 11 with a $100,000 grand prize. The deadline to enter is June 30.
