All Gelmer Chicas wanted was some milk.
While the Chesterfield, Virginia, man was in the store he decided to play the Virginia Lottery’s Diamond 7’s game. That ticket ended up winning the game’s $100,000 top prize.
It happened when he went to the 7-Eleven at 2704 North Washington Boulevard in Arlington.
I thought I’d won $1,000, he told Lottery officials as he claimed his prize. I asked some friends to check it.
That’s when he discovered he’d won the top prize.
I went out to the street and screamed, he said.
Chicas said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
