Michigan Native Hits $17 Million Dollar Jackpot In Lottery Winnings

(WXYZ) — A Michigan man hit a $17 million Lotto 47 jackpot last month, the Michigan Lottery announced on Thursday.

The 57-year-old player from Ogemaw County matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn on Aug. 24 – 05-15-21-28-38-43. He bought the ticket at the Checkered Flag Party Store in West Branch.

What a country we live in. Even when you're down on your luck, you can always hope of walking away a millionaire if all goes right. What a sight! I'm super happy for this guy. I know the lottery doesn't bring much luck to the winner when they collect their check but this is some life changing money for this dude. I hope he spends it wisely and can get out of Michigan to enjoy someplace a little bit warmer. Don't go spending it all on drugs and sex!
