Winning the lottery is always an experience filled with excitement and joy, especially when you get to share it with people who have always been there for you. That’s the case of Jennifer Molina and Lucinda Britt, two best friends from Virginia who ended up splitting an amazing $1.000.000 windfall.

The lucky duo matched the winning numbers 11, 14, 22, 24, 28 and 38 in Virginia Lottery’s Bank a Million game on August 13th. The winning ticket was purchased at Smoke Shack, 3038 Ballentine Boulevard in Norfolk by Ms. Britt’s brother, who also happens to be Ms. Molina’s fiancée. He was the one who checked the ticket a day after the draw and started yelling around the house, but it wasn’t enough to wake his sister up – Ms. Britt finally got out of bed to see what all the fuss is about only after he told her he’s having a heart attack.
“He started screaming, ‘We’ve got the numbers! We’ve got the numbers!’ I thought he was going to have a heart attack. I jumped off the bed and nearly did a cartwheel,” recalled the lucky woman.
Ms. Britt, who works as a health insurance claims specialist doesn’t intend to make any big purchases or leave her job any time soon. She will use the money to pay off her mortgage and save some money for her 5-year-old daughter’s college fund. When it comes to her best friend Ms. Molina, she plans to buy a new house with her fiancée.
