A Michigan man won big with the Lucky instant game, lottery officials said.
(CNN)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.”
