A Mega Millions lottery winner from Lansing, Michigan, is planning to expand his small business after winning $1 million in a guaranteed millionaire drawing.
Recently, another Michigan Lottery winner waited a month to claim a scratch card prize worth $2 million, and now Manuel Perez III told Michigan lottery officials that the timing couldn’t have been better. “I scraped together everything I had over the last few years to buy a small business, and I recently made the last payment and want to expand,” he said, continuing: “Now I can do that without having so much stress.” A Powerball winner from Missouri was also able to expand his business after winning $1 million, and he admitted that the money also helped to save it.
Mr Perez’s ticket matched all of the five main numbers in the February 2nd Mega Millions drawing: 1, 4, 14, 17 and 40, winning him the second-tier prize worth $1 million. He took himself to Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing last week to claim his prize money.
The Mega Millions winner explained that he checked his winning ticket in the same store where he bought it, a Kroger store on Dixie Highway in Bridgeport, and it was in that very shop that he found out he was a big-time winner. “I stopped in the Kroger the morning after the drawing to check my ticket, and the clerk told me I had won $1 million,” the Michigan Mega Millions winner explained, continuing to say that he was dumbfounded. A recent Iowan lottery winner described herself as dumbfounded after winning $30,000 on a scratch card.
“All I could say was: ‘Huh? Are you serious?’” And the clerk was serious, and now the 47-year-old says he plans to make sure that by using the money wisely, he becomes better off in the long run. An Irish EuroMillions winner of €500,000 said that the windfall will be lifechanging for her.
“The way I see it, you can do one of two things after winning ticket Lottery,” the Mega Millions winner said. “You can either use it to change your life or buy things. I’m going to put it to good use and change my life.” A mechanic from Kenya said that his lottery win will completely change his life, saving his business and paying for his children’s educations.
