Michigan resident scores $4.4 million on accidental lottery ticket purchase
FLINT, Mich. -- A simple mistake turned one lucky person into a millionaire.
In Flint someone said they mistakenly fed a $20 bill into a lotto ticket machine. They meant to only use $10, but decided to buy a Cash for Life ticket anyway.
It turned out to be a big winner.
It was worth at least $4.1 million. Workers at the store where the ticket was bought say the recent win has business booming.
The lucky person is now deciding between lifetime annual payments of about $200,000 or a lump sum of $4.4 million.
The lottery winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
