    Hamilton resident Joel Lyles will receive $1,000 for the rest of his life after purchasing the winning ticket of the June 1 Win for Life drawing.

    The odds of winning this top prize are one in 5.2 million and Lyles is Virginia's 43rd winner.

    "I actually hope for small prizes," Lyles told Virginia Lottery officials.

    The winning numbers were 5-12-18-30-33-34 and the Free Ball number was 3.

    Win for Life participants choose six numbers from 1 to 42 and then turn in their play slip at a Lottery retailer in order to get a ticket.

    Lyles choose his numbers based on a combination of birthdays and personally significant numbers.

    Hamilton Convenience, which sold Lyles the ticket, will receive a $10,000 from the Lottery for selling the winner.

    How much did he “invest” in this project over the years; what is his rate of return? Work now and use the winnings for retirement.


    Inflation will make $52,000/yr worthless. The smart thing to do is to invest that weekly money and enjoy it at retirement while still working.


    Way to go Joel.  I’m happy for you man.  And that jeep I bought from Autolink a number of years ago is still going strong!  Great for Hamilton Convenience too!


    Finally, someone wins a major lottery prize who is young enough to enjoy it. Congratulations Mr. Lyles. Spend some, give some, save some.
