FALLS CHURCH, VA — Using numbers with a special meaning paid off for Falls Church resident Douglas Rosen. Twenty times, that is.

Rosen scored $100,000 in the Virginia Lottery’s Pick 4 game using his birth year, 1958, as the winning four digit combination. He bought twenty plays with the same numbers, and it was his lucky day in the May 10 night drawing. Each of the tickets won the top prize of $5,000.

“I could just feel it,” he told Virginia lottery officials. “I knew I was going to hit!”

Rosen, a small business owner, plans to save his winnings. He bought the winning ticket at 7-Eleven at 4505 Lee highway in Arlington.
