Virginia Beach woman claims $3M prize in lottery scratch-off game


VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia — A Virginia Beach woman has claimed a $3 million prize in the Virginia Lottery.

The Lottery says Patty McCune received her winnings Thursday at a Virginia Beach convenience store where she bought the $3,000,000 Silver Spectacular scratch-off ticket a day earlier.

McCune chose the cash option of $1.6 million before taxes instead of a $3 million payout over 30 years.
