 Buying Gas Leads To $1M Mega Millions Prize

We’ve heard many stories about some strange things that have led to a massive lottery win. From buying dog food to running errands for the wife, we never cease to be amazed by all the wonderful ways in which one can come across having a massive lottery win. Read further to find out how this Michigan man won $1 million with the Mega Millions lottery. 

A very lucky man from Kent County area in Michigan has just won a whopping $1 million with the Mega Millions lottery. He won after fortunately stopping for gas which lead to a destined last-minute purchase of a Mega Millions lottery ticket. 

Last Minute Decision

The winner’s name is Michael Hicks, and he won his fortune the very same night that the Mega Millions jackpot was won. This fantastic win took place on the 11th of September 2015. Michael told Michigan lottery officials that he was never planning on buying a ticket for the Friday night draw, but he decided to buy one on impulse after stopping to buy gas. 

“I had to make a quick stop for gas and that’s when I bought the ticket,” said Michael. Michael will now join another Michigan winner, Sarah Hupp, who also recently won $1 million with the Mega Millions lottery. 

This lucky Mega Millions winner in our story is from the Comstock Park area. He bought his winning ticket from the D&W Quick Stop shop in Grand Rapids. The winning Mega Millions numbers for his lucky ticket were as follows:

5-11-31-50-67. The Mega Ball number was 14

This was the only number that Michael missed out on, but, one extremely blessed player from New York managed to also match the Mega Ball number, immediately winning them the massive jackpot of $106 million. Like many players in the past, Michael at first didn’t realize how substantial his win was. 

Michael decided to take his small pile of tickets to the store to check them. It was there that the clerk scanned them and instructed him to go and find the manager, who then told him to go directly to the lottery office because it must be a big win. 

“I gave the ticket to the clerk and they told me that I had managed to win more than $600 and I needed to go to the lottery office in order to claim it,” explained Michael. 

Mega Millions Win

Very eager to hear what the big news could be, Michael set off for Michigan’s lottery headquarters in Grand Rapids and soon learned that he had won $1 million on the Mega Millions lottery. He then found out he had to drive to Lansing in order to claim his winnings. “I couldn’t believe what they were saying,” he said to the local press, “It just didn’t seem real…it was like all of my stress immediately disappeared,” he said cheerfully. 

When asked what he was planning to do with his Mega Millions winnings, he said that he wants to use the money to pay off his bills and buy a new house. He never mentioned whether he is planning to retire early or carrying on normally with life, but he will be setting aside a significant portion of his winnings to pay for his son’s college education. 

Congratulations to Michael on his wonderful win!
