A man by the name of Lawrence Kopczyk from Michigan, USA, is going to be off to Europe soon after he recently won $1 million with the MegaMillions lotto in the December 8th draw. The scary part comes in when he nearly won a whopping $57 million instead of $1 million. Read further to find out what exactly happened.
Lawrence is 70-years-old. He bought his winning ticket from the VG’s gas station in Howell. His grandson was the one who helped him pick his numbers. His grandson also reminded him to get his tickets checked after the draw had taken place upon hearing that there was a $1 million ticket that had been sold in that very store.
Lawrence did as his grandson suggested and got his five tickets checked the following day. One of his tickets matched three numbers, but he told himself to stay calm and not jump to any conclusions. After he realized he had matched five numbers, he yelled, “I finally did it!”
After he realized he had won big, he called his son. It took him three times to convince him that he had won $1 million. Lawrence has been an avid lottery player since 1972 and his son joked that he had now finally broke even after all those years of staying true to the game. His previous win was only $100.
Lawrence is the latest MegaMillions millionaire in his state. He came so close to winning the $57 million jackpot but had missed out on one number. His numbers were:
He missed out on the Mega Ball of 15. The interesting thing is that one of his other tickets matched 15, which won him an extra dollar. He wants to use his windfall to pay off his mortgage and his bills. He also wants to help his family and put the rest toward his retirement fund. This winner’s dream is also to go on a riverboat cruise in Europe.
You can also live the dream by staying in the game like Lawrence.
