Oct. 7 (UPI) — A Virginia woman said a scratch-off lottery ticket she received as a wedding anniversary present from her son turned out to be a valuable gift indeed when she won a $ 1 million jackpot.
Charrondarous Goode-Burroughs, of Richmond, told Virginia Lottery officials her $ 1 Million Royale Scratcher lottery ticket was a wedding anniversary gift from her son, who purchased the ticket at the E & C VA store in Richmond.
She said the small gift turned into a large boon when she scratched off a $ 1 million top prize.
“It said $ 1 million, but I truly didn’t think it was $ 1 million,” Goode-Burroughs recalled.
The winner said she has not yet decided what to do with her jackpot.
