A Powerball player from Michigan has recently become a millionaire after winning $1 million in the December 16th draw. He only found out he was a winner, though, nearly two months after the draw had taken place. Daniel was walking around with $1 million in his very own wallet for two months.
Daniel Chase is from Alto in Kent County, Michigan. He bought his winning ticket at a Speedway Store in Alma. He matched five main balls with the following lucky numbers:
He, unfortunately, missed out on the Powerball number 6. If he matched that, he would have won the $180 million Powerball jackpot. Daniel revealed that after buying his tickets, he put them in his wallet because he occasionally checks them when he remembers to. “I like waiting because it lets the dream of being a winner go on a little longer, and, this time, that dream came true!” he said.
Daniel isn’t the first winner to have kept their ticket for so long. A play in Devon won big with EuroMillions Lotto and kept his ticket in his pocket for two weeks!
Daniel finally got around to cleaning out his wallet this month when he found the three Powerball tickets. He checked them all against the Powerball results online. One of the tickets matched five numbers, but Daniel really thought he was mistaken and looking at the wrong draw. He gave it to his wife to check, but they were still sceptical, so they went to a grocery store to scan it.
When they scanned the ticket, the machine told them to consult a store clerk. Daniel tried again. “When they couldn’t cash out anything, it started sinking in that we had a big winner,” explained the happy Powerball winner.
After all that commotion, Daniel was starting to finally believe it after remembering that he heard of a winning Powerball ticket being sold in Alma. “It’s so hard to believe we won $1 million. For the last few days, we just look at each other and smile,” he said.
Daniela and his wife will use the money to help raise their kids, and they also want to have some home improvements done and a holiday away with the whole family.
