Virginia man Kwame Cross says he "just had a feeling" about the numbers 7, 3, 1, and 4 after seeing them on an address in the background of a TV show. Cross, who owns a small business in Washington, DC, went out and bought 160 lottery tickets with those numbers, which hit the $5,000 top prize in the Virginia Lottery Pick 4 game on Dec. 5, CNN reports.
