Jim Flynn has won one million dollars.

“I just took my tickets in to check them. It came up that I had to call the lottery so I thought there was something wrong with the terminal. But then it came up that I had won a million dollars.”

Flynn said he has been buying lottery tickets since he was 19.

He is planning on putting the money in the bank and has no plans to quit his job.

Flynn bought the winning ticket at the Chevron gas station in New Hazelton.
