Newport News, Va. – A woman’s love for the color purple actually led her to a big win in the Virginia Lottery.

Angela Kilgo says she loves the color purple which explains why she purchased an Amethyst Purple scratcher from the Citgo Mart at 12836 Jefferson Avenue in Newport News.

She won $100,000. She was so excited she screamed but nothing came out.

Now she says she’ll be able to replace her 20-year-old vehicle.
