One year after he lost everything he owned in a flood, a Michigan man has more than recouped his losses by winning a staggering $2 million from a scratch-off lottery ticket. “Last year, I lost everything in a flood,” the unidentified 29-year-old says.
“So to win this prize is so overwhelming to me.” The winning ticket — a Lucky 7 — was the first $20 scratcher the man had ever bought, he says. “When I saw I had a match, I thought, ‘Great, I won my money back!'” he says. “When I saw I had actually won $2 million, I couldn’t stop shaking.”
What would you do with $2 million? Would $2 million last a lifetime these days?
