A woman who bought 30 lottery tickets with the same numbers thanks to a hunch is celebrating a 150,000-dollar (£114,000) win.

Deborah Brown, from Richmond, Virginia, United States, said she purchased 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers 1-0-3-1 after seeing the digits “a couple of times during the day”.

She was so confident about the numbers that she later bought 10 more.

The combination won the February 11 draw, with each ticket worth 5,000 dollars (£3,800).

Ms Brown said she “nearly had a heart attack”.

She is considering using the multiple prizes for home renovations.
