Local News

Campbell County, Va. (WFXR) — Meet Campbell County’s newest millionaire! Michael Robertson won $1 million on a scratch off ticket he bought last week at a store on Wards Road.

Robertson tells WFXR that when he found out, he texted his daughter with the great news right away.

He’s been playing the lottery since it started in the Commonwealth, and has won a few thousand-dollar tickets, but nothing this big.

We asked him what he plans to do with his winnings.

“Buy some land,” he said, “invest some in my company, and set up my retirement. Roofers don’t have very good retirement plans.

Burley’s Market sold him that winning ticket. They’ve sold to three million-dollar winners in the past 10 years.
