CHARLESTON, W.Va. - For Larry Hughes, winning a big West Virginia Lottery prize was as easy as 1-2-3. And 4.
The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports that the contractor from Kimball played those numbers 61 times to win $302,600 in Thursday night's Daily 4 drawing.
Hughes told lottery officials he plays the 1-2-3-4 combination every day and buys at least 60 tickets a day.
The combination has worked for him before. He won $52,600 twice - first in 2006, and again in 2008. Lottery officials say the Daily 4 draw machine has generated a 1-2-3-4 series only three times. Hughes won big every time.
