Wedding bliss is in the air for a Michigan couple after winning bigtime after their special day. The 57-year-old player bought the Diamonds & Pearls lottery ticket from an E-Z Mart in Prudenville, Michigan.
The winner revealed that he bought the ticket for his new bride a day after they were married. “I bought the ticket the day after my wedding and gave it to my wife to scratch,” the player said. “When she revealed the ‘$1 MIL’ prize amount, we were in disbelief. We kept reading the instructions over and over again to make sure we really won. It was an exciting couple of days for us!”
He decided that he and his wife would take the winnings in a one time payment of $683,000. Congrats to the newlyweds and their massive victory!
