ROANOKE (WDBJ7)-- A Roanoke man is one million dollars richer today after scratching a $1,000,000 High Rollers Club lottery ticket.

Charles Stanley bought the winning ticket at a gas station on Brambleton Avenue in Roanoke.

“I thought, ‘Well, I’ve won $100,’ but it turns out I won a little more," Stanley said.

According to the Virginia Lottery, the $1,000,000 High Rollers Club game features prizes ranging from $10 up to $1,000,000.

Stanley is the first player to win the one million prize in this game, which means three more remain unclaimed. You may want to check your tickets if you've purchased one recently!
