What do an allergy shot and a million-dollar lottery ticket have in common? Larry Meador got them on the same day.

The Richmond man was on his way to get the shot when he stopped for a soda at the 7-Eleven at 1300 East Nine Mile Road in Highland Springs. While he was there,he bought a Virginia's New Year's Millionaire Raffle ticket from the Virginia Lottery.

His ticket was #235060. On January 2,the day after the raffle drawing,his wife Gayle called with an unusual question.

"Is this a real ticket?" she asked.

On January 10,the couple returned to the store to receive their check from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. The store received a $10,000 bonus for selling the $1 million ticket. Watch the video to hear their incredible story!
