Wilson scratched to win $500,000 in the Virginia Lottery’s Millionaire Mania game. He bought the winning ticket at the Handy Dandy Market in Woodbridge.

In 2005, Wilson won $1 million in a scratch-off game and $500,000 in another. The year before, he won a $25,000 prize. That brings his total winnings to $2,025,000.

“I’m just in the right place at the right time,” Wilson says.

He retired from the postal service in 2007.
