Last year, a Michigan man lost everything in a flood, but this year? His luck has changed and made him a millionaire. The 29-year-old, who wants to remain anonymous, just won $2-million from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
He tells lottery officials that he never buys the $20 tickets, but he splurged this time after seeing the Lucky 7s ticket because seven is a lucky number for him. And it paid off – literally! He nabbed the top prize and couldn’t believe his good fortune!
“When I saw I had a match, I thought: ‘Great, I won my money back!’ When I saw I had actually won $2 million, I couldn’t stop shaking.” He decided to take the lump sum one-time payment and he walks away with $1.3-million, which he plans to use to pay bills and save the rest. “Knowing my kids will be taken care of is the best feeling in the world,” he says.
