A father won a million dollars on a lottery scratch card after going to stores to buy chocolate milk for his children.

Dennis Willoughby, of North Chesterfield, Virginia, said he stopped at the 7-Eleven store in the state capital, Richmond, to buy chocolate milk for his children.

While in the store, the father decided to buy a scratch card with the Platinum Jackpot and was stunned to discover that he had won the $ 1 million grand prize.

He had the choice of paying the full amount in annual installments for the next 30 years or a one-time lump sum of $ 640,205 before tax and opted for the cash payment.

He was the second highest prize winner for the Platinum Jackpot game, which means a $ 1 million ticket is still in circulation.
