The draw comes a week after Thomas Heckman came forward claiming a $ 1 million Mega Millions ticket.
Heckman claimed his prize a few days after a woman from Genesee County won $ 4 million by playing an instant lottery ticket. The 60-year-old winner had actually won $ 2000 last month playing the same game.
His victory was reported only a day after a man from Lansing asked for a $ 1 million prize. He was so shocked by his victory that he thought he had been mocked at first.
These two winners are just two of the few winners in recent weeks. In March, a woman from Wayne County requested a $ 4 million instant lottery ticket. The 28-year-old said he dreamed of winning a $ 4 million lottery prize a few months before his big win.
The last Michigan players to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot were Kevin and Stephanie Blake of Waterford who won $ 21 million after breaking a $ 42 million jackpot on October 13, 2017. Kevin chose the winning numbers using a combination of family birthdays. After winning, the couple said they will not retire and will continue to work.
And while they were lucky winners, it is clever for players to check their tickets immediately because a winner worth $ 1 million sold to Ypsilanti last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased from the Ypsilanti CVS, but the winner never showed up to claim the prize. Instead, the money went to the state school aid fund.
Speaking of his future, last year's Mega Millions $ 1.5 billion jackpot winner finally arrived last month. The identity of the winner has not been revealed, however, as the player comes from South Carolina, a state that allows winners to hide their identity when they claim jackpot prizes.
If you want to be the next Michigan player to win a huge lottery prize, take a look at the suggestions from the lottery enrista Richard Lustig. The author of "Learn how to increase your chances of winning the lottery" has won over $ 1 million in Florida by winning the first jackpot prizes in smaller games.
