Robert Manning finds lottery ticket in wallet

Virginia Lottery

A Virginia man cleaning out his wallet hit the jackpot. Literally.

Robert Manning found a stack of Powerball tickets while digging through his billfold. Turns out, one of them was worth $1 million.

"It feels crazy," Manning, 51, said as Virignia Lottery officials presented him with his check Monday, according to NBC News. "It feels like there's nine million things going through my mind."

Numbers from the ticket he bought (3-7-9-26-54) matched the first five numbers for the drawing.

With one child in college and another planning to go, Manning's win came at a good time.
