March 26 (UPI) -- A Virginia man's wife has good cause to offer him some forgiveness after he disobeyed her and bought a lottery ticket worth $4 million.
Oliver Davis Jr. of Portsmouth told Virginia Lottery officials he knew buying a Super Cash Frenzy ticket might land him in some hot water at home.
"I told my wife I wouldn't do it anymore," Davis said.
He said she might forgive him, however, since the ticket was a $4 million top prize winner.
"I broke a promise, but I think she'll forgive me this time," he said.
Dollar Delites, the store were Davis bought the winning ticket on Friday, was awarded a $10,000 bonus for selling the winner.
