A 66-year-old man is nearly $1 million richer, thanks to the Michigan Lottery. He happened to be enjoying his favorite game, which was $1 Million Lucky 7’s, when he struck gold.
He plays this game a few times a week at a local gas station. He had bought a ticket, scratched it off in his car, and then actually went back inside to tell the owner as they both were excited by the news.
Top Prize: $1,000,000
Overall Odds: 1 in 3.75
This game is an in-store scratch-off game only. So if interested, you would need to find a local lottery retailer that sells this game.
First, you purchase the ticket or however many you want at a time. Then you start by scratching off the clovers and pots of gold.
If you happen to match any of your scratched off numbers to any of the lucky numbers, you will win that prize shown for that specific amount. If you win a pot of gold, you win that prize amount automatically.
There are some prize symbols to be on the lookout for as well. If you get a horseshoe, that prize is doubled. If you get a gold bar, that prize is tripled. If you get a “win all” symbol, you win all of the 16 prizes shown. Also, if you reveal a 7 in any of the bonus spots, you win that amount.
This game costs $10 each time you want to play, so there are no second chance opportunities. If you would like to play more, you would need to buy another ticket.
The odds of winning a single prize for this game are 1 in 3.75. To increase your chances of winning any prizes, you can simply purchase an additional ticket.
Keep in mind that if you purchase another ticket, it would require another $10. So make sure to play responsibly and have the bankroll to add more cash to this game.
The Wayne County man chose to receive his $1 million top prize in the form of a one-time lump sum payment instead of an annuity. This, after taxes and fees, resulted in an estimated $634,000. He will then be subject to any taxes the following tax year.
