Jan. 20 (UPI) — A Virginia man’s lottery hot streak started with a $100 win and continued with a $200 prize, a $400 win and finally a $100,000 jackpot.

Jose Vasquez of Charlottesville told Virginia Lottery officials he was left feeling lucky after a scratch-off ticket earned him a $100 prize, so he invested some of his winnings into another ticket that earned him $200.

Vasquez said he decided to test his lucky streak and bought another ticket, which earned him $400, and he used a portion of those winnings to buy a Money Maker Crossword 5X ticket from the Cherry Avenue Market Store in Charlottesville.

The ticket was a $100,000 winner.

“I am happy since I have always wanted to open up my own company but did not have the funds to do so,” the winner said.
