CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia Lottery Director John Musgrave announced today that Michelle Dotson of Iaeger claimed a $100,000 prize from the Muscle Car Money game on Tuesday, just one day before the Lottery delivered a brand new 2011 Chevrolet® Camaro® to the game’s first instant car winner.
“Good things happen when you play and a lot of good things are happening right now with our $10 Muscle Car Money™ instant game,” Musgrave said.
Justin Weaver of Independence, Preston County, won the first of six muscle cars from the game and West Virginia Lottery marketing director Nikki Orcutt presented him and his family with the keys to the brand new Camaro® today at Harry Green Chevrolet in Clarksburg.
“This is the most luck I have ever had,” Weaver said as he accepted the keys. “I read all the specs on the four different muscle cars I could pick, but I really loved the new Camaro®.”
Weaver, a mechanic who is currently looking for work, says he plays lottery games from time to time when he has a few dollars left over from grocery store purchases. He purchased the winning ticket at Brown’s Mill Grocery.
His wife Stacie and their youngest son Chase (3) accompanied Justin to pick-up the family’s newest edition. Their new Camaro® is white with a camel color convertible top and leather interior. The West Virginia Lottery not only covered the purchase price of the vehicle, but also covered applicable taxes and fees.
Michelle Dotson bought her winning Muscle Car Money™ ticket at the Legato Super Market and claimed her $100,000 grand prize on Tuesday at Lottery Head quarters in Charleston. She is the second of a possible four $100,000 winners from the Muscle Car Money® game.
Dotson, a nurse, said she screamed and started shaking so much when she scratched off the $100,000 mark on the ticket that her husband thought something was wrong.
