Clinton Co. Man Wins $1 Million From Lottery Game
A Clinton County man’s “bad day” took a major turn when he became the lucky winner of a $1 million prize from the Michigan Lottery.
“I was having a bad day, so I left work early and stopped to purchase a lottery ticket on my way home,” said the player. “When I scratched the ticket and saw I’d won $1 million, all I could think was: ‘There is no way this is real.’”
The 40-year-old player who has decided to remain anonymous, won the huge prize after buying a Michigan Lottery 20x Cashword instant scratch-off game from J&H Family Stories in Owosso.
The lucky player has decided to take his earnings in a one-time payment, and plans on spending a portion of his winnings on a new truck.
