An unidentified woman from Macomb County, Mich., has won $2 million from a scratch-off lottery ticket that she bought due to how the ticket looked.
The 44-year-old bought a $2,000,000 Multiplier Spectacular ticket due to how it caught her eye. The scratch-off retails for $20.
“The $2,000,000 Multiplier Spectacular ticket caught my eye because I liked the color and design, so I decided to give it a try,” the woman told lottery officials.
“When I scratched the ticket and saw I’d won $2 million, I had to do a double take because I thought I was reading it wrong. When it finally sunk in that I’d won, I was very excited,” she continued.
The woman chose to receive a lump sum payment of nearly $1.2 million over receiving 30 annual payments for the full amount.
The woman said she will use her winnings to pay bills and will save the rest.
In March, an unidentified Michigan man used his set of lucky numbers to win $400,000 from a Club Keno drawing.
