Anthony Hart, a 21-year-old psychology major, stopped in at a Sheetz gas station in Chantilly, Va. for a magazine and a Slurpee and instead left with a winning lottery ticket.
Hartäs winning ticket, a scratch-off ÜWin for Life¯ ticket, will provide him with $1,000 a week for the rest of his life, paid every three months in lump sums of $13,000. There is no maximum or cap off point for Hartäs prize. Hart had initially purchased two tickets and lost. He then purchased a third ticket, from which he won seven dollars. Hart used part of that winning to purchase the five dollar ÜWin for Life¯ ticket.
The ÜWin for Life¯ scratch game had six tickets in which $1,000 could be won every week for life. Hart was one of the last to win that prize. There are several other prizes varying from $500 to $5. The game was launched in August 2002 and will end in June.
Hart and his family had initial disbelief about his winnings. His father encouraged him to stay calm and not get overly excited until the ticket was verified as a winner, which it was just days after it was purchased. Hart was presented with his first check in an awards ceremony. Hart said, ÜOnce we had it, it was just like big smiles.¯
