VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. –  For five months, a Virginia Lottery ticket worth $1 million lay in a drawer in Aubrey Barbour’s house, and he didn’t know it!

The Virginia Beach man bought his ticket in Lynchburg while visiting family. The ticket was all but forgotten until he stumbled upon it in his checkbook.

"I think I'm dreaming!" Barbour said.

Barbour's ticket is one of three top prizes from Virginia's New Year's Millionaire Raffle. 

The ticket would have expired at the end of June.
