A man in Michigan got the surprise of his year, after an old scratch-off ticket he almost threw away turned out to be worth $2 million!
The 29-year-old man scratched the ticket four months earlier, but didn’t think he won a prize. When his wife asked him to turn in some winning tickets with smaller prizes, he decided to check through his truck for more tickets.
“I went back out to my truck to look the ticket over and realized I’d matched number 13,” he said. “When I revealed the ‘$2 MIL’ symbol underneath, I was speechless. It is a miracle this ticket didn’t end up in the trash.”
“I don’t plan on making any big purchases with the money, but rather use it as a nice financial cushion for our family,” he said.
