Lionel Miller’s win went virtually unnoticed.

The retired federal employee was shocked when he won and asked his wife, “How does it feel to be married to a millionaire?”

The winning ticket was bought at the Mt. Vernon Square Safeway in Alexandria. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
