A man from Michigan in the United States ignored a mail that said he had won a $100,000 lottery prize (approx 82 lakh rupees).
A man from Michigan in the United States ignored a mail that said he had won a lottery prize of $100,000 and was playing the Michigan Lottery’s $300,000,000 Diamond Riches Second Chance game. He initially thought someone from his college friends was playing a prank on him, but it turned out to be true.
A player who wanted to remain anonymous earned $100,000 in a random lottery on September 28, according to Michigan Lottery Connect. He entered the drawing by scanning non-winning Diamond Riches tickets on the Michigan lottery app.
The 59-year-old winner told Michigan Lottery officials that he had won $100,000 in a lottery second chance game. I thought it was a trick being played on me by my college friends. I was skeptical about everything after talking to someone at the Lottery. I know that it’s real, and I’m sitting here holding a check!
The winner went to the lottery headquarters to accept their award. According to the Michigan Lottery, he plans to keep his winnings.
“I’ve been a lottery player for a long time and I’ve won a little but you never think it will be you who wins the big one,” the man said.
Each non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches ticket qualifies for a second chance to win a reward between $500 and $100,000, according to the Michigan Lottery. By November 13, 2022, players will be able to enter to win tickets on the Michigan Lottery mobile app.
