Michigan guy wins the $18.4 million lottery prize, playing the same number

A man’s determination to play the same set of numbers over and over again paid off when he won the $18.41 million Michigan Lottery jackpot.

He purchased the winning ticket at Prudenville’s Family E-Z Mart.

The player told lottery officials, “I have been playing this set of numbers since 1991 and have rarely missed a drawing.”

“I’ve thought several times about trying a new set of numbers, but decided each time to keep playing this one.”

“I checked my numbers before I went to bed the night of the drawing. When I recognized the set of numbers, I checked my ticket over at least a dozen times. I was shocked!” he added.

To claim his win, the 61-year-old player went to Lottery headquarters. He elected to accept his prize in the form of an $11.7 million lump sum cash payment.

He stated that he intends to share his gains with his family, donate the remainder to charity, and save the rest.

“It still hasn’t sunk in that I won,” he said.

“I am so glad I decided to stick with this set of numbers.”
