Brenda Gentry said she won $5,000 on a Virginia Lottery Scratcher game just a few weeks ago and followed up with a $500 win shortly after collecting her prize.

Gentry said her winning streak carried on to this month, when she scratched off a 50X the Money ticket she bought at Food Mart in Charlottesville and revealed a $5 million top prize.

Gentry chose to receive her cash as a lump sum, amounting to $2,808,989 before taxes.

The big winner said she doesn't know how she will spend her newfound wealth.

"This has been a little nerve-wracking because I don't want it to change my life," she said.
