MICHIGAN WOMAN WINS $4 MILLION DOLLARS THANKS TO A RANDOM STRANGER

According to Mlive, the winner is a 54-year-old woman from Genesee County who has chosen to stay anonymous. I don't blame her, If I'd won that much I wouldn't want any of my friends or family to know either.

The anonymous woman and her husband stopped to get gas and chose to go inside to pay for it which ended up being a life-changing decision. While waiting in line to pay for the gas the couple was approached by a  random stranger that told them "You should purchase a $30 lottery ticket, I bet you will win $4 million dollars. The couple thought about it and decided to take the random stranger's advice and bought the winning ticket.
