Man who never plays lottery wins $1M on gift ticket: ‘This isn’t what we expected’

A Virginia man who never plays the lottery took home a big win on a gifted ticket last week.

Daniel Schuman didn’t think much of the lottery ticket his wife bought him for Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle, but it ended up winning him US$1 million.

“We saw that the number matched, and we checked again,” he told Virginia Lottery officials. “It was shocking. It’s like, this isn’t what we expected!”

Schuman picked up his winnings from a local 7-Eleven store on Feb. 20. The corner store received $10,000 for selling the ticket, which ended up being one of three top prize winners in the New Year’s Day drawing.

While many dream of how they’d spend a million-dollar win, the Arlington lawyer says he hasn’t thought that far ahead.

Two other million-dollar winners were from Portsmouth and Chesapeake. Five others won $100,000, and 500 other lottery players won $500.
