A man won $2 million from a scratch off lottery ticket after losing everything in a flood

Published:

A year after losing everything in a  flood, a Michigan man won $2 million from a scratch off  lottery  ticket, according to  lottery officials.

The 29-year-old man, who decided to stay anonymous, bought the ticket at a grocery store in Midland.
"Last year, I lost everything in a flood, so to win this prize is so overwhelming to me," he said, according to a news release from the lottery commission.
The man said he never played $20 tickets, but when he stopped to pick up some things on his way to get his kids, the Lucky 7's ticket caught his eye. He said seven is a lucky number for him.
"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."
Each Lucky 7's $20 ticket offers players a chance to win from $20 to $2 million. Four $2 million prizes remained as of Friday.
The man won $10,000 a few years ago and thought that was his once-in-a-lifetime shot. Now, he's $1.3 million richer, after opting to receive his winnings as a one-time lump sum. He plans to pay bills with the money and save the remainder.

Nice story, I like reading stories where someone down on their luck wins big.
