DETROIT – A Detroit man won a $2 million lottery jackpot after taking a quick trip to buy tickets at a Warren gas station.
The 53-year-old man bought his winning ticket at Fast Track Gas Station on Mound Road in Warren.
“I love playing the lottery, and I play a lot,” he said. “It was Christmas Eve, and me and my wife decided to go out and purchase some tickets. When we got in the car after buying our tickets, I looked at the Jackpot Millions ticket and said to her, ‘Winning $2 million would be life-changing.’
“We started scratching our tickets when we got home, and when I saw I’d won the $2 million top prize, I was in shock. Winning this prize truly is life-changing.”
He visited lottery headquarters and chose the one-time lump sum prize of $1.3 million.
The man chose to remain anonymous. He said he plans to pay bills with his winnings.
