Genesee County Man Freaks Out After Winning $1M, Drives Off With Gas Pump in Car
A Genesee County man recently won $1 Million playing 'Winning Millions' from the Michigan Lottery. This dude was so jacked from his winnings that he forgot about everything else that was going on around him and drove away from the gas station with the gas pump nozzle still in his car. I'm not judging this guy one bit because I would probably do the same exact thing.
Winning Millions has been my favorite Lottery game since it came out. I stopped at Speedway to get gas and decided to get a ticket while I was there. I started scratching the ticket while my gas was pumping. When I saw I’d matched the number 14 and then revealed the $1 million amount underneath, I started yelling: ‘Are you kidding me?!’ I was so excited, I forgot I was filling up with gas and drove away with the gas pump still in my car.
Where did he buy the winning ticket from?
The anonymous 59-year-old was pumping gas at the Speedway on Owen Road in Fenton when he realized that he'd just won $1 million. He was scratching his ticket while pumping gas and that's when his life changed forever.
According to MLive, he elected to receive his winnings as a one-time lump sum payment of about $634,517 rather than the annuity. With his winnings, he plans on buying a new home, a new car and planning a vacation.
