    Who needs Powerball at times like this? A $5 scratch-off lotto ticket netted a cool $200,000 for a Manassas resident.

    Virgilio Contreras told lottery officials he couldn't believe his eyes when he realized he had a winning ticket in Virginia’s $200,000 Jackpot game, so he showed the ticket to the store clerk.

    "The clerk said, 'Wow, that's $200,000!'" Contreras later told lottery officials.

    Contreras bought the ticket at a 7-Eleven located at 2973 Chain Bridge Road in Oakton.

    $200,000 Jackpot launched with seven $200,000 prizes available. Contreras won the fifth. Other prize amounts on those tickets range from $5 to $10,000. The tickets cost $5 each.
