RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A Staunton woman is the Virginia Lottery's latest $1 million prize winner.

Lottery officials say Sara Kesterson bought the winning ticket for the Casino Royale Scratcher game at a Kangaroo Express in Staunton.

Kesterson claimed her prize at the store last week. She chose the one-time cash option of $575,000 before taxes.

The Lottery gave the store a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
