Virginia man gives wife $10 million lottery ticket for Valentine’s Day

💕

Forget flowers and chocolates, a Virginia man did whatever it took to give his wife a $10 million lottery ticket on Valentine’s Day.

The husband of stay-at-home mom Maria Chikas bought tickets to the Extreme Millions Scratcher at the In & Out Mart on Mattis Avenue in Manassas just days before the romantic getaway, the National Lottery said.

After realizing he had a winner, the happy husband called Maria to share the good news.

“Ah, you’re lying!” she told him.

“I thought he was joking!” a resident of the Prince William County Haymarket told lottery officials.

But he wasn’t kidding, and turned the ticket into the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for a shocked significant other with the option to pay in full over 30 years, or a “one-time cash option” of $6,570,302 before taxes .

She chose the latter.

Meanwhile, the store received a $50,000 prize from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket, the fourth and final jackpot in the Extreme Millions Scratcher game.

“The policy of the Virginia Lottery is to end the scratch-off game after the last jackpot is won,” the lottery said.

The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 2,937,600.
