After George Coffroad bought 100x the Money instant tickets from Landmark Towers Sunoco in Alexandria, he casually threw them on the car floor. One of them gave him a big surprise at home.
After scratching his tickets he discovered that one had won the $10 million top prize. After reality set in, he made his claim and chose to receive a single pretax payment of $5,617,977 before taxes instead of the full amount spread over 30 years. The small business owner says he has no immediate plans for his windfall.
