John comes from Michigan, and he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry after he discovered he became $1 million richer with Mega Millions. The winner is 76-years-old and he got lucky in the Mega Millions draw that took place on the 19th of January earlier this year.
John matched the following winning Mega Millions numbers:
He bought his winning ticket at the Grand Party Store in Brighton, Michigan. “My friend told me that there was a winning lottery ticket worth $1 million sold at the Grand Party Store so I went there to check my ticket. When I had the clerk scan my ticket, she screamed: ‘Oh my God! You’re the winner!” said John about the moment he found out he was the winner.
He immediately tucked the ticket in his money clip and went home to tell his wife Tina about the good news. He had been married to his wife Tina for almost 48 years.
Tina shared her experience of what John looked like when he came home with the news. “He looked terrible when he walked in. I kept asking him what was going on, and he was kind of half laughing and half crying. He was acting so strange. The next thing I know, he blurts out ‘We won the lottery!’ I was so stunned. I picked up the phone to call the lottery and make sure he was alright,” explained Tina.
After the lottery officials confirmed his win and she knew he wasn’t hallucinating, the couple called the whole family to share the amazing news. “We could barely speak on the phone properly when we were talking to our kids. It took a good while to convince them that we weren’t playing a nasty trick on them or anything,” said Tina.
The family went to the headquarters to collect their $1 million prize together. The family wants to buy a boat and travel together to new places. “We’ve been very fortunate throughout our lives, and we’re going to continue enjoying our lives together,” said John.
