Oct. 12 (UPI) — A Michigan man is celebrating his lucky streak after scratching off a $1 million lottery jackpot on the same day he won a $5,000 prize.
The 24-year-old Jackson County man told Michigan Lottery officials he won $5,000 from a Super Bonus Cashword scratch-off ticket and he was “still feeling pretty lucky” after discovering his prize.
“Later that night, I bought a couple Ruby Mine tickets and hit $1 million,” the man recalled.
The $1 million winning ticket was purchased from the Speedway gas station in Jackson.
The winner said he plans to use the money from his dual wins to purchase a new home and a new car. He said he also plans to share some of the cash with his parents.
