Twice as Lucky

Ronald Durham of Wyandotte matched five white balls in the May 2 Lucky for Life drawing and won $25,000 a year for life.

But this isn't Durham's first big win. In 2014, he won a $250,000 KENO prize.

Durham tells the Michigan Lottery he feels like the luckiest person in the entire state.

“I play Lucky For Life every day and I always check the numbers online after the drawing,” said Durham. “I checked the winning numbers as usual in the morning, and when I saw I won $25,000 a year for life, I was shocked! I feel like the luckiest person in Michigan."

Durham went on to say that he is in disbelief after winning a second major prize from the Michigan Lottery.

"It’s hard to believe I’ve won another big prize less than 10 years later!"


He Took the Lump Sum

When players win a 'Lucky for Life' jackpot, they have the option of taking a lump sum payout or a $25,000 per year annuity for 20 years or the rest of their lives, whichever is greater.

Mr. Durham opted for a one-time payment of $390,000. He tells the lottery he plans to use his winnings to do some traveling and save the rest.
