Michigan LotteryMichigan Lottery: Michigan man claims $3.4M Lotto 47 jackpotRating:

LANSING, Mich. — A Macomb County, Michigan, man has some planning to do after winning a $3.4 million Lotto 47 jackpot.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won the big prize when he matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Feb. 8. The winning numbers drawn that evening were 6, 7, 12, 16, 18, and 46.

He bought the winning ticket at the Victory Inn, located at 28950 Mound Road in Warren.

"I heard a winner had been sold at the Victory Inn, so I checked my ticket. Then I checked it again, and then once more just to be sure I was the winner," said the player. "I was stunned to see I really won!

"I've always told people I would win. I've even had a bucket list of items I want to do if I win, but now I'm so shocked I can't recall what any of those things were. It's time to start planning and getting that list together!"

The lucky 68-year-old player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time lump sum cash payment of about $2.1 million, rather than annuity payments for the full amount.

With his winnings, he plans to check off some items on his new bucket list and then save the remainder.

    Congrats on the win!

    "I heard a winner had been sold at the Victory Inn, so I checked my ticket. Then I checked it again, and then once more just to be sure I was the winner," said the player. "I was stunned to see I really won!"

    Like this player, a lot of people don't check their tickets and many prizes go unclaimed.

    Good thing, for him, that he heard the news about the winner being from the place he purchased his ticket.

        They mean the 68-year-old Macomb County man that bought the ticket at Victory Inn in Warren. But he chose to remain anonymous. LOL

          l would hope this 68 year old adds skydiving to his new bucket list.

          He better not say " far too dangerous" at his age. Need l remind this chap..

          President George HW Bush did a Solo jump at 75 years of age. Another at 90  despite being confined to a wheelchair....truly a man with stones!
