(Little Rock, AR) An Arkansas man says he’s a millionaire thanks to his granddaughter.

Donald Duke says he was in a convenience store when his granddaughter told him he needed to buy a Millionaire Madness scratch-off ticket.

Duke says he had no plans to buy a lottery ticket, but his granddaughter insisted.

Duke scratched off the bar code on the $20 dollar ticket and checked it with a lottery validating machine.

The machine said he needed to get his prize at a claim center.

Duke says he scratched off the numbers at home and found out he won $1 million dollars.

He plans to put some money in the bank, fix up his home and donate some to his favorite charity which is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
