When Maria Chicas of Haymarket, Virginia, learned that her husband got her a scratch-off lottery ticket as a Valentine’s Day gift, she thought it was a joke. Because, of course, lottery tickets are not nearly as romantic as flowers.
But all that changed when Maria realized that she didn’t just get a lottery ticket. She got a WINNING lottery ticket -- worth $10 million.
Her husband bought the ticket a few days before Valentine’s Day, learned that they were multi-millionaires – and then sprung the big news on V-Day.
