Lottery Player Still On A Roll, Wins 9th Prize

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Brenda Bailey is still on a roll.

This week, the 60-year-old South Charleston woman claimed her ninth West Virginia Lottery prize, $7,000 in the Gem 7s instant game.

That brings her total winnings since last September to $159,000 from five instant tickets.

Lottery officials say Bailey has claimed a total $165,800 in prizes from instant and online games since 2000.

She's not the only lucky one in the family.

Her husband Richard claimed a $6,000 instant game prize in January and a $10,000 prize last September.

    NO ONE is that lucky. The officials in WVA need to look close at this one.

    I would be curious to know if they work somewhere that the lotto ticket are sold. Seems fishy to me.
