MEADOWVIEW, Va. -

A Meadowview, Virginia man has won for life -- the lottery, that is. 

Thomas Taylor won the top prize in the Virginia Lottery's Win for Life Game. Mr. Taylor matched the first six numbers in the April 27 drawing, winning a thousand dollars a week for the rest of his life. 

He bought his winning ticket at Brown's Pantry on Lee Highway in Abingdon. 

Taylor is the 41st lifetime winner since the game began in 2006.

He says he was surprised by his win.
