RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A Richmond woman received an extra special wedding anniversary gift from her son – a lottery ticket worth $1 million!
Charrondarous Goode-Burroughs was given a $1 Million Royale Scratcher from the Virginia Lottery from her son.
“It said $1 million, but I truly didn’t think it was $1 million,” she later told Lottery officials.
But, she was wrong – the ticket was indeed a winner!
“I couldn’t believe it!” she said. “I’m still processing it.”
Her son bought the winning ticket at E & C VA on Williamsburg Road in Richmond. The store receives a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
Goode-Burroughs had the choice of taking the full $1 million in annual payments over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $601,684 before taxes - She chose the cash option.
She said she has no immediate plans for her winnings.
