Winning $1 million is extremely exciting, so it makes sense that a Michigan man who scored a cool million playing a scratch-off lottery was so stoked that he left a gas station with the gas pump still in his car.
The anonymous man told the Michigan Lottery, “Winning Millions has been my favorite Lottery game since it came out. I stopped at Speedway to get gas and decided to get a ticket while I was there. I started scratching the ticket while my gas was pumping.”
He added, “When I saw I’d matched the number 14 and then revealed the $1 million amount underneath, I started yelling: ‘Are you kidding me?!’”
Thankfully, gas stations are often constructed so that the pump just breaks away in a situation like this, so no major damage occurred.
The winner claimed his prize in a one-time, lump-sum payment of about $634,517. Nice!
