A LUCKY lottery player won hundreds of dollars on three tickets before banking $100,000 in an incredible winning streak.

The man told lottery officials that he was left feeling lucky last month after an initial $5 investment on a scratch-off ticket paid off big time.

It started with a $100 prize on a ticket Jose Vasquez bought at a Charlottesville, Virginia, convenience store.

After his first winning Money Maker Crossword 5X ticket, he decided to play again and won $200.

To his surprise, a third ticket earned him $400. But he didn’t stop there.

Vasquez bought another scratch-off ticket, this time winning a whopping $100,000 just days after Christmas.

He beat some impressive odds as the chances of winning a top prize in the game are 1 in 1,224,000, according to the Virginia Lottery.

The lucky winner told lottery officials that he had big plans for the unexpected prize money.

“I am happy since I have always wanted to open up my own company but did not have the funds to do so,” Vasquez said.

Money Maker Crossword 5X is a game available through the Virginia Lottery.

It involves a crossword puzzle, with players getting 18 letters and a challenge to complete three words, according to The Charlotte Observer.

Vasquez took home the third of six $100,000 prizes available in the series, meaning three top prizes remain unclaimed in the game.
