For one Michigan man, he had both of those things happen all within 48 hours.


Michigan Man Gets Married And Becomes A Millionaire

A 57-year-old man from Livingston County has chosen to remain anonymous  (Can't say I blame him for that) after winning $1,000,000 on a scratch-off ticket.


The big win came only one day after he got married to the love of his life.

Where Was The Winning Lottery Ticket Bought?

The anonymous winner bought a $10 Diamond Pearls ticket at Prudenville E-Z Mart, located at 2403 West Houghton Lake Drive in Prudenville.

The anonymous winner told Michigan Lottery Connect about the winning ticket:

I bought the ticket the day after my wedding and gave it to my wife to scratch, 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!


How Much Did He Win?

The prize was $1,000,000, but since he has decided to take the cash option instead of annuity payments after taxes he will pocket $693,000.


He plans on taking that money and putting it all into investments.

This guy did the smart thing by putting his winnings away.

Unfortunately, these five Michiganders hit it big but didn't have such great luck.
