A Michigan man got a first-hand experience of the strange way in which Lady Luck works. A simple mistake ended up being a very lucky moment for Richard who won $1 million on Mega Millions with the Michigan Lottery.
The winner’s name is Richard Hopper, aged 69. Richard matched five winning Mega Millions numbers. They were 18-41-50-68-70. This means he instantly became $1 million richer. Richard bought his lucky Mega Millions ticket at the Sunrise Sunset Party Store situated at 1009 Huntly Road in Niles.
“When I stopped to buy my Mega Millions ticket, the clerk behind the counter said that he accidentally printed a quick pick for another player who didn’t want it, and he asked me if I wanted to buy it or if I wanted another ticket. I decided to buy the ticket that was already printed, and man I'm glad that I did,” explained Richard. This is exactly why luck is a chimera. As soon as you think you’re starting to understand it and take a firm grasp on it for yourself, it eludes you. Luck will find you, and never the other way around.
That was tremendous luck! When it came time for Richard to check his Mega Millions ticket after the draw on Saturday morning, he was surprised to see that his ticket wasn’t ordinary. Richard thought that it had earned him a $100,000 win. He couldn’t have been further from the truth. Many players have made this same mistake before. It’s because of how the tickets are printed and the information on it is very misleading. You can avoid this by rather buying your lotto tickets online with us.

“When I was looking at the winning numbers, I remember thinking ‘boy, those look familiar’”, said Richard. “At first, I thought I had won $100,000 and I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that I had actually won $1 million,” added Richard.
Richard had to stay patiently at home with $1 million in his pocket and he mentioned that it was very “nerve-wracking.” It was the longest weekend he had ever had. After the weekend had passed, he headed to lottery headquarters first thing on Monday morning to claim his winnings and prove he was the winner.
Richard wants to pay off all his bills and save the rest for a rainy day.
