Roanoke man wins 1 million dollar lottery prize

ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) Christmas has arrived a bit early for one Roanoke man.

Tony Allie is now a millionaire after winning the top prize in the Virginia Lottery's Bank a Million game.

The winning ticket was sold at the Bee Quick Market in Vinton.

Allie matched all six numbers in the November 18th drawing.

" I was pretty excited. I was going upstairs to wake my wife up to tell her something very important I had to tell her. I don't think she believed me," Allie said.

Allie's wife was there with him when he accepted the prize. She said they plan on using the money to replace one of their cars.
