A MICHIGAN man won $2million off a scratch-off lottery ticket after a gas station clerk gave him the wrong ticket by mistake.
The lucky winner, who has chosen not to be identified, reportedly stopped at a gas station in a Detroit suburb to put air in his wife’s truck’s tires.
The 57-year-old went inside and asked for a $10 Lucky 7’s ticket, however the clerk accidentally gave him at $20 ticket.
“He offered to exchange it for me, but something told me to keep it,” the man said in a statement. “I am sure glad I did!”
CNN reported he took the prize as a one-time lump sum, taking away a $1.3million payout instead of an annuity of the full $2million.
According to the Michigan Lottery, the winner plans to use the money to buy a new house and will be saving the rest.
