A Virginia man won $250,000 by using numbers that he saw in his dream to play the lottery, officials said.
Alonzo Coleman of Henrico, Virginia purchased the winning ticket at a convenience store in June, according to the state lottery. The retiree used the numbers 13-14-15-16-17-18 as well as the Bonus Ball 19.

“Since he split his $2 wager four ways when he bought the ticket, he had four sets of numbers,” lottery officials said in the press release. “Using that “Play Your Way” feature, he won $250,000 on one of his sets of numbers.”
According to officials, the chances are slim to win the Virginia Lottery’s Bank a Million top prize —with odds of winning 1 in 3.8 million.
“It was hard to believe!” he said, per the release. “It still hasn’t hit me yet!”
The same luck was granted to another Virginia man a few years ago. In 2018, Victor Amole used a number sequence that he saw in a dream as his lottery numbers, resulting in him winning $400,000, Inside Edition previously reported.
Earlier this year, a Virginia resident won $132,000 by purchasing 264 winning lottery tickets.
