VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A Navy veteran recently struck gold at a 7-Eleven in Virginia Beach.
Roderick Hawkins scratched off the top prize in the 5 Million Dollar Payout from the Virginia Lottery after buying two tickets from the 7-Eleven at 5300 Princess Anne Road.
The Virginia Lottery says Hawkins, who’s living in Virginia Beach, picked the one-time cash option of $3,285,150 before taxes instead of the full $5 million payout over 30 years. There’s currently one more $5 million prize left to claim in the game.
Hawkins says he plans to take care of his family with the winnings.
