DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (WLS) -- A suburban man's marriage is already paying off, and there hasn't even been a wedding yet!

Chase Knapp's fiance asked him to run some errands for the big day, so he decided to test his luck. He bought lottery tickets at three different stores. It turned out the third stop was the charm.

The scratch-off ticket he bought at a Villa Park gas station won him $2 million.

"I'm standing in the gas station just talking to myself saying, 'I think I just won,'" Knapp said.

He said he'll invest some of the money and use a chunk of it to pay for the wedding.
