A Bedford County man is one million dollars richer after he scratched to win with the Virginia Lottery.
Marquis Foxx said he was on his way to work when he stopped at the Speedy Mart on Blue Ridge Avenue and bought a 20X the Money ticket.
"It’s like a dream come true," he said as he claimed his prize at the Virginia Lottery’s customer service center in Roanoke.
Foxx chose to take the one-time cash option, getting $610,874 before taxes.
The store where he purchased the ticket receives a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
Foxx is the third person to claim the top prize in the game, which means there's one more top prize ticket unclaimed.
The chances of winning the $1 million top prize are 1 in 1,224,000. The chances of winning any prize are 1 in 3.51.
