When Linda Lipford of Chester looked in the newspaper, she knew immediately she had won the top prize in the Virginia Lottery's Win for Life game.

Ms. Lipford matched the first six numbers in the August 15 Win for Life drawing to win $1,000 per week for the rest of her life. She bought the winning ticket at Chester Chubby's, 12500 Jefferson Davis Highway in Chester.

On the day after the drawing, she returned to the store to receive the first in a lifetime of checks from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. The store received $10,000 from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The winning numbers for that drawing were 2-7-9-11-24-26 and the Free Ball number was 34. She selected the numbers on her ticket using family birthdays.
