DETROIT – A Detroit man was stunned after winning a $2 million while playing the Michigan Lottery.

The man, who chose to remain anonymous, matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Wednesday: 04-18-19-35-42-46.

He bought his winning ticket from the CVS Pharmacy at 2701 South Telegraph Road in Dearborn.

"I scanned my tickets, and when my ticket kept telling me to see the retailer, I thought something was wrong," he said. "I took the ticket home and asked my son to look at it with me.

"He read the numbers out loud, and I looked at the ticket. That’s when I knew I had won the jackpot."

The man visited Lottery headquarters Friday to claim the jackpot. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.2 million rather than an annuity.

With his winnings, the man plans to donate to his church and save the remainder.

"I don’t feel anything right now," he said. "It will all hit me later. I just keep wondering is this real?"
