Man wins $1M thanks to favorite lottery ticket being sold out

Aug. 22: A Michigan man said a store being sold out of his preferred scratch-off lottery ticket turned out to be fortuitous when his second choice earned him a $1 million jackpot.

The Alpena County man told Michigan Lottery officials he visited The Corner Depot store in Alpena with the intention of buying a specific $10 scratch-off ticket.

“I was looking for a different $10 instant game, but the store was out,” the man said. “I saw the Emerald 10’s ticket and decided to give it a try.”

The player said he initially thought he had won $1,000 and didn’t realize his error until he moved on to scratching another ticket.

“I scratched the ticket, and thought I won $1,000 and set it aside. I started scratching the second ticket I bought, and all the zeros caught my eye. When I focused in on the prize amount, I couldn’t believe it,” the man said.

The winner said he plans to use some of his prize money for home repair project and invest the remainder.
