"I try to buy a lottery ticket in every state I pass through when I'm on the road," Vo said. "You never know when you could be a winner!"

Vo's strategy paid off when a Powerball ticket he bought from the Ocala Stopping Center in Reddick matched all five of the white ball numbers, missing only the Powerball number. The ticket earned him a $1 million prize.
