CONWAY, N.H. — A 72-year-old Conway, N.H., man has won more than $1 million in the Tri-State Weekly Grand Extra lottery game.

Christopher Brown was given a check Tuesday at the Shaw’s supermarket where he bought the ticket for the Nov. 11 game.

He told WMUR-TV he couldn’t believe his eyes when he checked the winning numbers.

The retired hospital worker has bought a new car and is thinking of taking a road trip, but he said he plans to be smart with his winnings.

The lottery will pay him $1,000 per week, before taxes, for the next 20 years.

Brown said that he’s going to keep playing his lucky numbers, figuring that he just might win big again.
